Hey everybody! How was your weekend?!
Mine was pretty good, although I missed the 2nd party, I didn’t hear my phone when Nichole called, and I needed directions :(. That was the one I was really looking forward to going to! lol
Antywhoo…I did attend the “girls night out” event for the church that I visit, and well… I will be the first to admit I have a brain/mouth filter that DOES NOT always work! So I managed to piss a few of the ladies off, when I voiced my opinion on how christians should live. lol
My view was significantly different from others and i’m okay with that. I believe that being a christian/saved does not mean you can’t listen to rap/r&b, wear pants, go to parties, have a drink every now and then. Personally, I believe that in order to be an effective christian and witness for Christ, you MUST be aware of what’s going on in the world, the music/trends, ie… the things that the devil uses to lure you in. We do NOT live in bubbles, we live/work/and play in the “world”, you can’t seclude yourself from the “world”, it’s impossible! The only thing you can do know what YOUR strongholds are, the areas where YOU are weak…. and avoid those things. And while those things are your issues/weaknesses does not mean its someone elses weakness… and I feel that blanket statements like “You should not have ANYTHING to do with the world if you are saved” are not appropriate. That’s just my opionion! It’s all about balance!! I did have fun, and my games went over very well!
I got some sewing done this weekend too!
Simplicity New Look 6697
OH!!! Do you see what came in the mail? That’s right yall… One of the MOST important/helpful tools for people who sew my Singer 151!! Woot Woot!
And I started draping this little jacket, that i’m going to pair with a pencil skirt made out of the same fabric. I just cut and pinned and sewed and pinned and sewed. until it started to look like something. I’m using orange thread in a zigzag stitch. The white stripes you see were already in the material, it’s just the way if came, so I’m working with it.
