Hello everyone! ♥ ♥ ♥
I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend wherever in the world you are :) I certainly did! It was filled with baby kittens, rainbow cake, an Easter egg hunt, and of course lots of chocolate. I didn't have an Easter dress for this year until I went thrifting on Saturday and found this pretty, floral, 90's dress. I have too many floral dresses to count already, but what really caught my eye was the beautiful crochet sleeves on this dress. I've never seen anything like it! It did perfectly well as a dress for the holiday festivities, but I think I might sell it in the future because I just have too many floral dresses...I've got to stop buying them!
I actually ended up going to church on Saturday evening instead of Sunday because of fitting everything in schedule. This was my first time going to 'my church' for Easter, since last year at this time I hadn't even visited it yet. I am a very emotionally connected person. I feel as though if I'm not moved emotionally by something, then I'm not feeling it with my heart and it... just doesn't feel right. I need to feel this inner happiness, this burst of emotion and life to feel satisfied in the choices I make and activities I do. That's why I'd been frustrated for some time because when I would worship in church for the past few months, I didn't feel that. I would get excited and riled up about the music, but I didn't feel that inner emotion that I once had felt when I first gave my life to Christ. It kind of came suddenly on Saturday evening though as I was worshiping-- that overwhelming feeling of joy that only Christ can bring. I couldn't help but finally cry and smile at the same time and lift my hands up high to worship; to think of all He has done for me and how He loves me. x
With much love, Lauren.
