Vintage inspired Thursday

Today I have my stylish daughter,Angel helping me today.
 She wanted to take pictures with me wearing one of my vintage dresses. Seriously, I really, really,like these vintage style clothes. I found the one Angel is wearing at a  consignment shop a few years ago.See the blue insert? I had that added, because it wasn't long enough to cover my knees when sitting. That is a must for me.
 My dress is the Dick and Jane print( made again from my grandmothers pattern). The lady we go to church with made it for me. Thank you Elisabeth (Elisabeth Mitchell) for making this darling creation! I do believe she is a genius! I can't sew a lick, other than do a little embroidery. So any one who that can actually sew using a pattern and a sewing machine are just down right brilliant ! Love you my dear friend!
 My Dick and Jane dress I have had for serval years and I never get tired of wearing it.
 Our pastor preached last Sunday about "who we represent  through the way we dress". And about how we reflect who we are. I know I am a daughter of the King, and truly want to represent Him. Not just the way I dress but through my actions.
  The song that is on my heart today that I my sister and would sing when we were little girls is this:
                                     HOW COULD I BE A FANATIC 
HOW COULD I BE FANATIC CONCERNING SUCH GREAT SALVATION? HOW COULD I NOT GET EXCITED TO NOT TALK ABOUT IT TO MUCH? IT'S THE GREATST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN FROM GOD TO FALLEN MAN WHAT'S WRONG WITH WANTING TO PLEASE HIM AND WALK JUST AS CLOSE AS I CAN!
      SOME PEOPLE GET ALL EXCITED OVER THE THINGS THAT DON'T LAST THEY WILL STAND IN THE RAIN AND THEY WILL HOLLER OVER A KICK AND A PASS, BUT WHEN I THINK OF LIVING FOREVER ETERNAL AND NOW ON AND SUCH, I HAPPEN TO WHISPER WELL GLORY AND THE THEY SAY THAT I AM SHOUTING TOO MUCH!
                                    SO HOW COULD IBE FANATIC?
I am a daughter of the King! I am made in His image! How about you? Do you know where you are going? Do you know who you represent? Something to think about.
