What I Wore To Church August 20, 2017

Saturday, August 26, 2017

Dr. T and I have not been to church all summer. It has been a strange summer because we have been gone every weekend all summer, and so it was nice to be back today.

We started with this scripture: Galatians 3:26-29

26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

I'm very thankful for our church here. I'm extremely thankful for the Chinese ministry that is offered. I hope to someday become more involved with it.

This is what I wore to church today:

While we were in Brighton, England, there was an unexpected heatwave. I hadn't packed for the heat and humidity that we experienced so I had to go shopping for some clothes to wear for a few days. Poor me, right? Luckily, there was an H&M nearby. I found a couple of cute, black very casual dresses to buy. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw this dress. I loved the bell sleeves. I loved the paisley print. I had to have it. (similar)

I bought this bracelet from a young woman who was in M's sorority in college. She started a nonprofit while in college which helped Ugandan girls pay their school fees to attend school. All the jewelry was handmade, by Ugandan women. I think she closed the business because the website has been taken down. I've always loved this bracelet!


Dr. T bought these earrings for me in Aspen. We had so much fun at a Farmer's Market while we were there. I met the artist and loved all of her glass jewelry.  My favorite thing is to have a memory attached to something that I buy like this. I love meeting the artist or jeweler when I get to meet them. I love hearing the story behind the piece!! 


Wedges will never go out of style for me. Since I've pretty much ruined some cartilage and joints in my toes from running, if I want to wear heels, it has to be a wedge heel.  These are so comfortable. I wore them when I worked in the library. They are Coach. (Similar- here and here)
