I'm a Newbie, folks! This is my first time to link up to...anywhere! But I LOVE this idea :) I Love the idea of gathering together to talk and share about church and fashion. They are not mutually exclusive ;)
I came from Texas. I grew up wearing "Sunday Best" and wanting to honor God by dressing in my "Best", giving my Best inwardly and outwardly.
I once remember reading a story about a Farmer who invited his young neighbor to church. Sunday morning the Farmer got up early, donned his nice slacks, button up shirt, tie, and jacket ready to go when the young neighbor came knocking on his door. When the Farmer answered he was surprised to see the lad in worn overalls, nervously fidgeting, obviously embarrassed.
The Farmer was about to say something when it dawned on him that this was the best this young man had. And then, asking him to wait outside a moment the Farmer changed from his nice clothes and put on his overalls and the two went to church together.
I love this story, and I'm sure I'm missing some parts. But the essence has always stuck with me.
That Farmer, in his overalls, was wearing his Sunday Best. His heart gave his best to God in loving that young man, and not wanting him to feel embarrassed or out of place in church. And while I do love to "dress-up" and look and feel nice and put together at least *one* day a week, I always seek to remember what counts, my heart. Am I giving my Best to God, every day?
Anyway, I didn't mean to ramble on like that. It just kind of came out..so there it is. ;)
Sunday mornings are *always* NUTS in our house. I can't say we are always (ever?) on time..but I at least try to make sure we all have matching shoes..yes, I will take any victory I can ;)
And here is what I wore Sunday:
