{Day 25}

Those simple lines etched together to create meaning are so fascinating.  I love numbers.  They make sense to me.  They tell me something and it’s truthful.  On this spinning orb we live on so many things aren’t that simple and straightforward, yet numbers are.  Glancing at the clock and seeing 11:11 makes me smile.  Because it means something.  All those ones standing tall and straight like sentinels to remind me that time is to be guarded and cherished.  $50,000 grips me.  Because it means something.  All those open mouthed zeros tell me to wait patiently and they will be filled.  One fourth.  1/4th.  A quarter. Just trying to wrap my brain around that fact.  Because it means something…to me.  A slice of the pie may be gone but the best is yet to come.  75 more days left.  How much time will it take to get the children into beds instead of sleeping on the floor?

    Lovely! You are so pretty 🙂
    I love the cardigan with the dress, such a cute and simple combo.

      Thank you! 🙂 I too think it is simple but I love how it makes such a casual look out of a black dress.

    Beautiful writing! Thank you for being so inspiring! 1/4 of the way done, and yet still 3/4 to go. God will be faithful to sustain you, and He will be faithful to provide. Whether you reach the goal of $50,000, lives have been touched, and futures will be changed by this endeavor. You are more of a blessing than you even realize Elaini!

      That is very kind of you. It is so comforting to know that it is God who sustains me. 🙂

    A perfect cozy rainy day outfit. But now that I see the photos, I’m wishing you had a belt. 😉

      Haha! I had the same exact thought but I still like it just the same. 🙂

      Glenna Fashions let me borrow them… I have no idea where she got them. Sorry!
