I’m a sucker for Camouflage and Military green. There are so many ways that you can wear the two. Ways you can dress them up and down, create fun and laid back looks. I know some ladies think it’s only for men or those in the army, but it’s a great fashion statement. I just wanted to share some of my favorite ways to wear the two. Here are a few combinations I created I hope there is something here you can add to your wardrobe.
How often do you tell your self how amazing you are at your talents? How often do you motivate yourself? How many times do up wake up knowing that you are an awesome person?
You may answer sometimes, a few times or barely ever either way it goes it’s not enough. It’s so important to motivate and encourage yourself. You have to believe that you are the best at what you can do. God gifted us with many talents that He expects us to perfect and become experts of that craft. God did not give us the spirit of fear but of power,love,and a sound mind. 2 Tim.1:7. We must exercise the power given to us by our God in order to exercise our talents to our fullest potential.
We must have great confidence within ourselves, knowing and understanding how great God made us to be. It is imperative to tell yourself what you can do, feeding positivity into ourselves. I know advocating and encouraging myself makes me one of my greatest motivators.
Many times we discourage ourselves more than anybody else, but we must turn it around, turn negativity into the positivity. We must positively motivate and encourage ourselves. We must know who we are and what we are capable of doing. Speak to yourself and tell yourself that you can do anything. Advocate for yourself tell yourself what you can do and others will follow suite.
As I watched “The Real” this morning in girl chat they discussed old school fashions that have been brought back and those that you would want to be brought back. I started thinking about styles that I loved growing up and what Styles that have been brought back that I enjoy. One clothing article that I think is cool and so interchangeable is the body suit. There are so many different kinds, here are a few of my fave body suits.
Just know body suits come in all colors and way more styles than what I’ve posted. These are just some of my favorite styles. I showed you them in all black just for fun. You can pair a body suit with anything, shorts, jeans,skirts and suits.
Get your self body suited !!!
There has been so much talk in the media and social media about Kirk Franklins affiliation with Kanye West. Kirk has gotten so much flack and back lash and the majority of it has come from the Christian community. It’s sad that so many Christians don’t see the mission that Kirk was giving. Anyone who is aware of Kanye West knows that he went through a difficult lost, his mother passed , she was his rock, she kept him grounded. When you loose someone so close and you are in the entertainment industry it is very difficult he no longer had a grounded support system. I truly believe God gave Kirk the assignment of being just what Kanye needs a big spiritual brother, someone to help him get back on track, and give him the grounded support he needs.
God needs us as Christians to learn and know His word. God doesn’t want us to be a secret society or be a superior group of people. We are meant to walk in humility and boldly walk is His word. God’s word is true and a blueprint for how we are to live. We are to be as it is stated in Matthew 5:13-16
,13 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
We are to be the light in a world full of darkness. Kanye has been going through dark times and Kirk is being the light he needs. Instead of judging Kirks actions,we should be praying for Kirk’s spiritual strength and proud of his action. Kirk is setting a great example for us as Christians. Kirk Franklin just like many other contemporary gospel artist are in the place to draw those in who won’t be drawn in by traditional gospel. I appreciate that aspect of gospel music they grab the attention of many teenagers and young adults. Just as my Pastor Dan Willis states all the time we have to change the method sometimes but not the message to draw in the youth and some lost souls. I have seen the positive affects of this type of ministry.
CHRISTIANS SHINE YOUR LIGHT TO DRAW OTHERS IN
DON’T DIM THE LIGHTS OF THOSE WHO ARE HELPING THOSE IN NEED!!!
I love a good skirt but something that has been on trend lately is circle and A-line skirts. These skirts are great for all occasions you just have to find the style that you need for each occasion whether it is work, a date, or church.
In the picture above there are a few of my favorites. A red tulle skirt is good for a party. The black leather would be great for a date night. The polka dot is ideal for work and the longer print skirt would be perfect for church. Each skirt can be dressed up or down. You will see more looks with examples coming soon. These are good additions to any fashionable women’s closet.
In honor of Valentine’s Day I wanted to share some love with my readers. I mean real true unconditional love. I don’t want anyone to go through this weekend and not feel loved. For many people the dread this weekend because they are single or just broke up with someone or they may not be happy in their current relationship. One thing that many people forget is that they don’t have to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a romantic love, it can be anyone who loves them. Also consider spending the day with yourself because you have to love yourself first before you can share love with others.
Self love is so important, but there is no greater love than God’s love. You have to know yourself and embrace yourself. You need to love your self love the person that God has created you to be. He didn’t make you like anyone else we all have been wonderfully and uniquely made by the greatest love all, God. How cool is it that Valentine’s Day falls on Sunday the day set aside as the sabbath for many religious denominations. I am a single woman who chooses to spend my Valentine’s Day with my greatest love, God.
Don’t be discouraged by the weekend find someone you can share your day with maybe a parent or grandparent. You can consider another single friend or maybe your niece and/or nephew even a godchild. Maybe you and your single friends can share the love with each other.
Just know that Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be a day to celebrate romantic love but a day to celebrate all forms of love.
LOVE YOURSELF, LOVE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND MOST OF ALL LOVE GOD BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED YOU !!!
