She was about to leave the building when I asked her if I could take a picture of her lovely outfit for my blog.
She told me she got her paper bag skirt from Madewell which I think is the piece that makes her outfit so stunning.
In addition to having a perfect outfit, she also had a wonderful personality. I felt like Sarah and I were friends for a long time. She was so down to earth. Even though we didn’t have much time to talk, I could tell she was someone I wouldn’t mind being friends with.
It was her idea to take a picture with the kids as a backdrop.
So, when my family went down to Virginia we went to church- of course!
Going to church made my Birthday all the better (my birthday happened to be the day after Thanksgiving).
But I’m not blogging about my Birthday. I’m blogging about the fact that everyone who was at church was literally related to me- from the pulpit to the door.
At the church I attend in New York, everyone is not related to me; so going to church in Virginia and worshiping with family only seemed like a once in a life time experience.
In this picture is my family and all who attended service that night.
Oh, and before I end, to top off having a good birthday, the preacher- my cousin, preached a message using Isaiah 40 which is the exact scripture I’ve been dwelling on since the summer.
Isn’t Jesus good?
