Summer, where are you, I’m ready?

I’m choosing to believe Summer is just around the corner, my tomatoes are in, the hydrangea is budding, the sweet pea is making an appearance and my lavender is blooming….don’t you just love summer and all the colour it brings? Does it inspire a change in the colours in your wardrobe?

I just had to share some photos of my garden, the weekend just been, we worked hard on it to get it into shape for Summer. I am loving the promises of colour that it is starting to give!

In the hope that Summer is just around the corner, today I decided to dress as if it is….well with the addition of my cardigan. I’m not loving my photos today, but I’ll post them anyway. Today I wore, my skirt from Minnie and Ree (Wellington Underground Market), a pink tee (Max), Yellow Cardigan (Glassons) and those shoes I mentioned in my post Life in Colour. Yes! I buckled and bought them…I just couldn’t stop thinking about them….might be time for some colour on my toenails.

Life in Colour!

Life needs to be lived in colour, life is for living, enjoyment and celebration…Life is such an incredible gift.  I love to celebrate the life I have, I am made to love and be loved.  I need to enjoy my life, my family, my friends and the many blessings in my life.  I do not believe in wearing black, I do not believe in dwelling on life’s challenges, I guess you could say that on the whole I live life with a positive outlook.  I love living life!

Recently, I was out shopping with mr 10, we were really out shopping for him….he was the priority that day, not me  🙂 I stopped to admire some shoes, these shoes to be exact


Aren’t they cheerful?  My son without prompting said, “mum, those shoes are colourful, just like you, you should buy them”  It was one of those moments that warmed the cockles of my heart, a precious word from a precious Son.  I think he must have noticed that I don’t do black, I do colour!

I am sure that doing colour has a positive impact on my life, there is something really quite cheerful about wearing colour.  It might help that I am a cool tone person, and therefore can enjoy wearing strong vibrant jewel tones. I have something else in my life too that makes me into the positive happy person that I am today…I have Christ Jesus. He is my Lord and Saviour.  I am constantly blown away as I am reminded that God sent his one and only Son to live on this earth, die on a Cross (like a criminal) and be raised to Life and through accepting him into my life and acknowledging my sin, I have Eternal Life.

Life is for living, I don’t just live life, I celebrate my life….a life of promise and hope in the Eternal God.

You too can have Eternal Life, by confessing you are a sinner and inviting Jesus into your life.

Oh and in case you are wondering, I resisted the urge to splurge and haven’t bought those shoes…I might one day, but due to other expenses, I haven’t even dared to try them on.
