Let's Pray

We built our home about seven years ago, and it was a process. For real. We did a lot of the work on our own and built a lot of equity into the house in the process. I love our home, I love our neighborhood, I'm content.  My husband on the other hand, is not. He wants a bigger yard and a "do over" on some of the things he doesn't love about our house. Now, selling a house with kids and finding or building a new one seems to be a logistical nightmare to me, but I support my husband's desire.  We've had a couple of agents come look and based our our house and neighborhood they think selling will be a piece of's what we'll do next that's tricky. We want to stay in the area, I want to avoid having to rent while we build, Brian doesn't want to build or buy until our house is sold. See, logistical nightmare. Then he called me one morning and said, "You know Ginny, we really need to just start praying about it." 

And you know what, he's exactly right. So often we try to do everything- big and small on our own.  We trust our gut, our instincts, and our past experiences....but I'm not sure that's the right way to go about it.  Philippians 4:6 says: "Do not worry about anything, but pray about everything." Yes, that sounds pretty good to me, but I don't always think that way. But I want to. I know the whole house situation will go much more smoothly if we ask for God's help and trust his hand it in and the timing too. 

I'll keep you updated on what we do, but I know God has us covered, we only need to ask for his help.

I haven't done this in a while, but this outfit is basically a knock off of this outfit Kendi wore.  There was something about it I really loved, and had very similar pieces in my closet, so here you go.  I really do love it and I'm going to admit breaking out the flares again feels good.  I'm so used to a skinny jean, but this pair I'm wearing fits me like a glove.

I got this cardigan this fall from thredUP (Use this link for $20 off your first purchase), and the top is old from Shein, although I really like this option. I'm also showing my Christmas gift my Better Life Bag for the first time on here too. I loved the bag I got from them this fall and really wanted a bigger one for everyday. I've been carrying this non-stop and it happens to match my outfit, so you get to see it today. : )  I really can't say enough about this company. I know sometimes bloggers show things as c/o an it can be hard to know if they really like the product or not, but this is one company I'm all about!

  1. Love this post! Sometimes we get so busy that we don't think to stop to pray and see what God wants. I'm very guilty of that. Love this look! Your shirt and bag coordinates so well. :)
