Sometimes plans just go out the window. I’m a planner – with everything – even my blog. I always have plans. But the truth is, I’ve been sitting here staring at a blinking cursor on my computer screen for two hours trying to think of what to write.
And all of it just seemed superficial. Trite. Fake. Pointless.
Yeah, I’m sharing the last of my when-I-had-long-hair outfit photos (by the way, my sweet blog and IRL friend Brooke and I are totally twins today – we may or may not have planned that. ) but none of that is important right now.
Between the horrific events of Friday and just a heavy day on Sunday, there are just no giveaways, outfits, or words that feel right to share.
Our pastor at church shared this quote in the sermon yesterday which really hit home:
“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
So today, I leave you with my brief rambling, a powerful quote by MLKJr, and a reminder to love one another. Love a stranger. Love a neighbor. Love your family. Just Love.
NOW it is time for the #YOLOmondays LINK-UP with my awesome co-host Carly from Lipgloss & Crayons! We had 119 AMAZING bloggers link up last week and I could not be more excited to “meet” you guys and I LOVE seeing how y’all mingle with each other! If this is your first time here, #YOLOmondays is a chance for us to link up anything we want (as long as it’s a blog post…).

“12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 3:12-14
