I am so excited to make my first post at Justicepirate.com!
Please, if you haven’t updated your bloglovin or google readers, do so! I had my blogspot blog for about four years and I am pretty positive that I have much less than the 600 or so users that I once had accumulated. You can also go to the bottom of the page and receive my updates by E-mail.
In reviewing these pictures, I got a little sad that I am starting to look more like one of my grandmothers. I know a lot of ladies in the fashion blogging arena tend to get excited about such things, but I was never close to either of my grandmothers, though I tried to be. I never found either attractive in appearance or personality (they weren’t to nice, unfortunately) and so these are the first pictures where I can tell I’m starting to look less like a teenager and more like my age (28). I’m okay with that though. Vanity is a tough thing to try to let go of as I age. Proverbs 31 talks about charm being deceitful and beauty being vanity and how really, that is not important at all or something you want to long for. In our culture in the US, it is what a high majority of us focus on. What we do in order to serve & obey God and serving others is what is long lasting and important. As my beauty fades away in time, I hope that I can be able to be beautiful for who I am in Christ.
I really think the last shot is cute because my son Leto grabbed my hand to walk only a few seconds to our car. He’s 5 years old and still wants to hold my hand. I don’t know how much longer that will last, but I was touched that both of my boys do this quite often.
