What I Wore-Hearts

At first I thought I was too old to be wearing sweaters with hearts on them but I love hearts. Have always doodled them ever since I was a little girl, as many of you probably have as well. Now, I have an even greater love of the heart.  Ever since my baby girl was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect I am just drawn to them. They are special and have unexplainable meaning to me.  So here is my giant heart sweater that is more than just a sweater to me. 

Sweater and checkered collar shirt: J-Crew factory clearance
Jeans: Gap sale
Suede boots: gift from my sissy
Navy purse: vintage from my shop
Speck on the lower bottom front of sweater: hot glue "hairs" from crafting headbands. :) Don't worry it wasn't stuck on there!

On another note:  My thoughts and prayers going out to the families in Connecticut. My heart is just shattered at this unspeakable loss and I can't even begin to imagine the heart ache.  Every time I see a news clip I just well up with tears and have literally sobbed when I see those precious faces.  Only God knows the answers and can offer the peace and comfort we need. I pray the families cling to Him and are drawn to Him through this tragedy.   If there has never been an event more evident of the real battle of good ( Our Savior Jesus Christ) and bad (satan & his demons) that we are living in, then I don't know what is.  But, the wonderful amazing awesome news is that good wins!  Our God has already won the battle. He paid the price & sent His Son and He already has a special place prepared for us in His Kingdom.  We just have to accept Him and walk with Him each day. When God is on our side, we will be victorious!
