International Giveaway + Luke

 Giveaway through Mont Affair! They are not sponsoring me, but they asked if I would share their giveaway on my blog. Why wouldn't I- pretty dresses that are free sound like a good deal.

This giveaway actually runs weekly, and will continue through September.   I saw these cutie earring on Mont Affair too!
 
Now pertaining to my life... my school starts up again in two weeks.  I have been so busy this summer with multiple projects and research with a professor that I haven't had much time to relax.  Beginning tomorrow I am going to travel away on vacation.  I look forward to spending time with my Papa, enjoying nature, kayaking, helping with my friend's wedding (CONGRATS MOLLY!), visiting Chicago for the first time, and taking some fun pictures to share with you all.
Luke is such a good Gospel book.  I have been working my way through the Gospels in the Bible and am now in Luke.  Luke was one of the disciples that, inspired by the power of the Holy Spirit, began writing of the life of Jesus Christ.  This is the third of four gospels accounting Jesus' life.  [*ahem*- My man J]
Perhaps it is just the season in my life, but I find that the gospel of Luke has so many verses that I highlight and return to.  I see so much parallelism, for example:  
"He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters." -Luke 11:23 
 "He who hears you hears Me, he who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me." - Luke 10:16   
Verses like these seem to be rephrased multiple times throughout this gospel/book.  Seemingly harsh words to people who are against Jesus.  But then I think- if I only took this verse and did not think about the entirety story, from creation to eternity, I would find this unjust.  God is love and purity yet just and jealous.  If He loved you always, and you were against Him, would it make sense that there is mutual actions leading to eternity with  the Lord/Creator?  These verses seem to propose a quite logical flow. 
 I do believe that the creator of this place we live in has a higher intellect and that the creator is the original point of inspiration for us.
Dancing in my Sugarlips dress- I miss ballet.

  9. What you say is about the Creator and the inspiration is BEAUTIFUL! There is a book by Taylor Caldwell about St. Luke's life, and it is amazing, a very rich read, although not as great as the Gospel. Nice blog :)

  14. Thank you for commenting on my blog. :-D To answer your question about my purple Stine Goya tights, I bought them on offer for about 50€ on http://www.youheshe.com/, but that was nearly two years ago now, so they're long gone I'm afraid. Anyways, your blog is really fun & colourful. I'm also digging your dance-inspired posing. :)
