Nothing from this outfit is new....or even available in stores, and that's ok. I'm thankful that non-maternity dresses like this still fit me! It seems like I'm literally growing bigger by the day. The funny thing about this pregnancy is that I haven't really been shopping in months. I think the fact that I know I'll wear the clothes for such a short time has kept from buying. I've really become content with what I have and honestly, I probably have more than I need. Luckily, a lot of my non-pregnancy dresses and cardigans still fit, which helps me to mix it up.
My current contentment reminds me of Philippians 4:12-13 which says "I know what it is to be in need and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned to be content in any situation. Whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all through God who gives me strength."
Paul, the author of Philippians is probably one of my favorite people from the bible and he spoke so beautifully about so many things. Thinking about clothes is such a #firstworldproblem . I honestly don't know what it's like to live without, my parents always had enough....or more than enough and the same goes for myself and Brian. If feels really silly to worry about clothes and want to "buy all the things." I really want this contentment to continue after our little girl comes. I think I've come a long way since starting this blog almost three years ago, but I'm still a work in progress.
I think a lack of contentment really robs us from peace and fully living the lives we have. Maybe you're holding onto wanting something, just as I challenge myself, I challenge you to look for contentment right where you are.
