Now I Begin,
Now I Begin,
The room is warm and I’m sleepy. This mass starts at 10:30, an hour and a half later than the mass we attended in VA. I’ve been up since 6:30, because I’m stuck in a hotel room with two dogs whose whining to potty I cannot ignore.
It’s the wheat and weeds reading. All I can think is, “I don’t want to be a weed. I want to be wheat. Does half listening in mass make me a weed? I don’t want to burn in the fiery furnace. I want to go to the barn with the other wheat,” Then “Is there any literal truth to this parable? If I let the weeds grow with the flowers I plant, can I just pull them up later? Will that work? I thought weeds killed the good plants. Isn’t there a parable about weeds choking wheat?”
Yeah, I got a little lost in my head there, nonetheless the message stuck.
Don’t be a weed.
This post is part of Rosie’s My Sunday Best Series!
If you’ve been following my travel posts then you are aware I have been living out of suitcases for 7 weeks, therefor my wardrobe is very much limited! As a result, many of the pieces in my wardrobe have had to double for out on the town and out and about.
This Sunday I paired salmon pink VIP stretch skinny pants/jeans from Ross with a scalloped white scooped neck blouse from Stitchfix. It’s a great blouse because it can be dressed up or down. Patent leather nude flip flops are casually chic and made sightseeing after mass manageable! The statue I’m with is of St Barbara the Patron Saint of Artillery. She’s located at one of the small chapels aboard Camp Pendleton.
What’s your go to accessory when you need to dress a simple outfit up?
