Peace after the Storm

hello hello, well I am still here. Last week was incredibly unlucky for me and my friends. One of my girls sprained her ankle, one found out her Christmas vacation plans weren't pushing through, one lost her contact list and had her phone and internet connection break down in one day, one went home to a flooded apartment and found her computer, project boards and all her belongings immersed in water.. I found out my plans weren't going exactly the way I wanted and my homesickness reached its all time peak last weekend. And amidst all that, we were rushing to finish a final project. Whew. What a hell of a week. Glad that's over. Everyday is a new day and this week a new week. I've realized a lot over the weekend and now this week, God has graced my heart with His peace. I'm learning now to be joyful and content solely in Him, regardless of how my plans and situations go. I am extremely thankful for God's hand in my life and for the angels He sent in the form of my beautiful friends.

Winter has been harsh and thus, no outfit pictures. Just one from last Monday :)

Sweater, BCBG. Tricot leggings, AA. Tights, from Korea. Turtleneck, Zara. Necklace, Claire's.

Just talked to my former boss too and she told me one of her fashion girls had resigned.. And I told her I may be going home earlier that planned. Now I think I may have a spot open for me back at my old job, where I absolutely loved what I was doing. I've been thinking.. maybe this is part of God's master plan. All I have to do now is trust and follow where He leads. I'm sure wherever He takes me would be awesome. ♥

And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm.
