It's no secret that I have a lot of people that don't like what I stand for…but for some reason, up until about two weeks ago, I was keeping these people in my life. Why?? I have no idea. They constantly criticized me publicly, mocked me, so on and so forth. (When I say me, I mean my blog, Facebook group, etc.) Every time I read a critical word about my page, I cringed and would get so mad! Why did I keep allowing myself to read these negative words!!? Finally, two weeks ago, I deleted and blocked all of these people that have been "bullying" me for the past 7 months. I can't even explain how free I felt to get those negative people out of my life. I still love all of them, but I can't allow them to continue to hurt me with their words. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:21a, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue.." I pray that the Holy Spirit helps me use my tongue to lift up others, to edify others, to bring happiness and joy to others… I never want to be that person who belittles people, who trolls the internet looking to start drama, and never has anything good to say.
God has given us the ability to speak, he chose US, to spread His gospel. He doesn't use angels, animals, or trees, he uses sinners. May we use our tongues to spread the good news, not gossip! May we use our tongues to edify, not criticize! May we use our tongues to make someone smile, not frown! God has given us the ability to make someone feel happy or sad… It's your choice, how you use your words…so make someone smile! :)
Now onto the clothes! :) One color combo you can never go wrong with, is black and white! I love the chicness and classiness of black and white! I love that you can wear it all year and just change your color of pop each season! Today I chose to pair it with mustard, my favorite fall color!
