P.S. You might have noticed that in this post I actually mentioned what brand my sunnies are.  In previous posts where I’ve worn these, I didn’t list the brand because honestly I didn’t know it since they were thrifted.  Interesting thing happened the other day while I was at a church picnic.  A very stylish friend was wearing some sunnies which I happened to be admiring.  I recognized the stud detail on them and when I looked closer I could see they were the exact same glasses I had, only hers were black.  I asked her where she go them and she said American Eagle.  Mystery solved.

  1. Great post! It reminded me of a bible study lesson from a few years ago. God is a, “right now” God. That taught me to not worry about what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, or next year. There is no clock or calendar for the Lord, he is working out everything for my best, right now. When we pray, the Lord dispatches agents to answer the prayer immediately. I may not see the results now (refer to the book of Daniel), but I will in the future “now”. I have to just trust him. So…you are right! Right now in the heavenlys, phenomenal things are being put into place for me. I didn’t mean to go off on a tangent, but this post was a “right now” refreshing for me. :^)

    1. I heard that! God’s time is always on time. We just need to put our patience panties on and wait. Yes, yes, yes and Jeremiah 29:11, one of my favorite scriptures, “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This was totally not “off tangent”! Well said, thank you for adding this.

  2. Thank you for these thoughts – they are heartening. I don’t ever think of these things, but you’re right, they’re happening, and the world is a lot more beautiful than I give it credit for.

  3. And right now, you have shined a beautiful ray of sunshine on my day!! Fantastic post, you look Mah-velous, and I LOVE the list of amazing things happening right now!! Be blessed!
