Peaches N' Cream

When I was a little girl, my daddy sometimes called me Peaches and Cream.
I liked being called that by him.

I couldn't resist adding a slight HDR effect to this shot - love the texture!

About a month ago, one of my friends at church gave me this skirt.  She had bought it at the thrift store, but it didn't fit right, so she gave it to me.  I'm so glad she did, because I LOVE this skirt so much!  It's so delicate and feminine, and just about the best twirly skirt ever.
You're never to old to twirl.

There's no built in slip, but my cream flannel petticoat works perfectly.  I'll have to do something different once the weather warms up, though!

The sermon at church today was titled "What is my attitude?" and focused on letting the Holy Spirit work in our lives.  Acts 1:1-8 was the main text, with a lot from the book of John and some in Ephesians.  The basic point of the message was that "The action of the Holy Spirit in our lives is dependent on our attitude toward the Lord Jesus Christ."  Something that really jumped out at me was that "if we continually reject the guidance and prompting of the Holy Spirit we will become spiritually deaf."  We're still saved, of course, but we won't be as effective for Christ, and we won't be growing in Him.
It gave me a lot to ponder and a new way to look at and examine my relationship with Christ.

Today was one of those days where all I want to do is run around yelling "Best day EVER!!" to anyone who will listen.  And then spin around in my twirly skirt.  I resisted both urges, at least while I was at church...well, sorta. :grin:
Such sweet fellowship after church at our monthly potluck.  My church family blesses me so much and I'm so thankful that the Lord led us to this church.  After this month, we will have been attending for a year.
Wow! how time does fly!

Have a fantastic week, everyone!

Question: who or what has been blessing you lately?  I want to know!

this song.  i like it.


  1. That skirt is so beautiful! I adore this outfit, and the way your shoes look just like salted caramel. Actually, you just made me really, really hungry:)

    I'm so glad you had a wonderful day!

  2. Pretty, pretty summer outfit! Long skirts in summer just feel so carefree and comfortable. Perfect for being outdoors at a picnic or running errands in the heat. I love the way you fixed your hair with one pretty blossom too!!

  3. Pretty, pretty skirt, Dahling! And how fun that the print goes perfectly with a shirt you already had(I assume)!

    God bless,

  4. That skirt is absolutely beautiful! I love that print!
    Hmm...lately, reading blog posts from Christian young ladies (like yourself!) have certainly been a blessing to me--they can be so inspiring! Also, I've been reading a book that my uncle assigned to me for our Bible History class on the Lord's Supper by a lawyer turned theologian call Martin Chemnitz. It's weighty reading (it was written in the late 1500s, after all!) but I have learned so much and I've found it very edifying. The past couple sermons that my pastor has given have also been a great blessing to me, because I have clearly been able to see their application in my life, which is a wonderful thing.

    So yeah...lots of blessings of late!(;
