Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 
Romans 8:5
 Jesus, today I am thankful for your perfection. You never change. You never fall asleep. You never fail. You are always looking out for me, protecting me, loving me. I am thankful that my emotions do not determine your feelings for me. You are constant when I am anything but. You are so good and I can't even begin to grasp it. I am a complete wreck. I fail you on a regular basis. Thank you for loving me anyways.

It's scarf weather! Finally. Fall seems to take forever in Columbia. Yesterday, however, I found the most perfect tree. Orange leaves and everything. It's an anomaly here. I try to step on as many crunchy leaves as I can before they disappear. And they turn out beautifully in a photograph. 

I also found the perfect scarf. Hand-made by a beautiful friend of mine. Janie of GardnerAndMe is incredibly talented. She makes thick, cozy scarves that will keep your neck warm until the end of time. And the best part? These scarves are for sale! Check out her Etsy shop and order one! They are made with love and prayer and you can certainly feel the difference.

Ship your grain across the sea; after many days you may receive a return.
Ecclesiastes 11:1
Well hey y'all. Long time, no see. My life has been a whirlwind these past few weeks and I'll be honest with you, I haven't really wanted to blog. I felt like I had nothing to say and yet had so much that I wanted to tell you. It was weird. But whatever. I'm back now. And the Lord is teaching me something big. Something I think I will never fully learn. Trusting in Him. It is one of the most difficult things for me to do. Instead, I am anxious and want to control what is around me. I get frustrated when things aren't going how I want them to. And it's all a result of my lack of trust in Him. I read this verse this morning and realized a relationship with Christ is founded on trust. I need to trust that He wants what's best for me and isn't withholding anything good from me. Sorry for the word vomit. Just needed to get that out there. 

So, in other news, Breaking Bad is taking over my life. Curse you, Netflix. I am approaching my last semester of college. I am loving taking photos more than ever. I am trying to get my priorities straight. And I want to come back to blogging. I'm going to take a little baby step and share this song with y'all. It was on the episode of Breaking Bad I watched last night. I was a big fan of this band in high school and man, it takes me back. Enjoy! 

Have a great Monday! I've got an outfit post coming your way tomorrow so stay tuned!
