If You Long to Belong + Shades of Orange

To belong is human nature.  We crave to be a part of something, be in the it group, associate with certain people so we are not left out, so we know what is going on.  It is human nature and when it happens naturally, out of genuine purpose, you feel at home, at peace with yourself and with your associates and friends.  Many times though we strive hard to be a part of something that we were not meant to be a part of, we want to be seen, to be heard but our longing to belong blinds us to the fact that we are within the wrong circle, shouting at the top of our lungs and doing everything within our might to be loved when no one is listening or if they are listening it is only to pick out the parts that might come in handy if and when you cross them by mistake.  

The good Lord saw that we could not communicate with the animals that is why he created a companion for Adam.  A companion, one, not two, not fifty, just one.  In as much as we are social beings we do not have to be part of a battalion to feel loved or at peace.  If you long to belong, you will continue to associate with the wrong crowd and even the wrong family members.  They say you can't choose your family members but believe me when I say some of them are better loved from afar, a distance, from another continent hahaha.   If you long to belong ............... let love and peace find you!

Today's outfit is what I had planned on wearing to church but we woke up late again and I had so much to do we decided to have our own little prayer time at home. As today is outfit post day, I still wore it just for you guys, hope you like it.
