The Pencil Skirt

I've recently (yesterday) fallen in love with something called a pencil skirt. A pencil skirt is long and thin--like a pencil--and reaches just above or a little below the knee. Wearing one and walking around, especially if one is rolling a suitcase behind you, makes one feel extremely professional, even if it is just around the house. I found these two amazing, like-new pencil skirts each for only $4 at the local Salvation Army store! (Buy resale, stop supporting sweatshops!) These skirts are so fun!

But honestly I didn't wear either of these outfits yesterday. I prefer to dress the pencil skirt down with a t-shirt like this:
This is me wearing the above stretchy pencil skirt in Granada, Spain with my daughter about 12 years ago. Even though the skirt didn't fit me for a lot of years after this, (I was having babies) I couldn't get rid of it because of this picture. 

I read a quote this week that said, ""One should either be a work of art or wear a work of art." 
It it my hope that you would know that you ARE a work of art! You are "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:114) by a Creator who loves you with an EVERLASTING love and desires a relationship with you (Jeremiah 31:3).
