what i wore: pretty pastels {and a heart felt post}

Do you ever find yourself in tears thinking about the blessings the Lord has given you? I'm talking about full on balling thinking about the simple things like food on the table to very specific and major life changing things like Scott becoming a naval officer.

I am so not worthy of all these gifts but God is good and provides.

These last 12 months have been a whirlwind of blessings. I have to pinch myself to make sure this is real life legit.

While at dinner a few nights ago in Grand Junction, Colorado I was telling Scott how I'm so overwhelmed with all of these life changes. Not the actual logistics of moving across the country, more so the life changing events that have happened.

I can feel the Lord working in my heart and whispering to me. I am still unsure of what his plan is but I know it is there. He had shown us that he has a purpose for us here on this earth. I have opened my heart and my mind to follow him, go in the direction he leads us.

Last week while talking with my friend Tobi she said something that really hit my heart, like bullseye whoa. She said " what if your purpose in going to Norfolk is because there is a baby there waiting for you to take home." WOW. We both started crying  when she said that and I'm tearing up now as I type. Wowza. I can't even find words to fully express how that statement grew my heart.

I can see that in every facet of our life the Lord is working and is in charge. Do you feel God working in your heart or whispering to you?

Cute pants and love that necklace! I too know that Heavenly Father leads us where we need to be, and he sees things clearly even when we don't yet have the full perspective.

Adorable outfit and lovely post. I completely agree that God leads us to the right places at the right time...we just have to be open to hear what he wants for us. :)

I too often feel overwhelmed by God's grace. He always has a plan and sometimes it's so hard to find it. Your post was a little bit of an encouragement for me to keep listening for his voice :)

P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog - so happy to have found yours too!
