Shine Bright Like The Son


I don't normally write in depth about my faith. You may see small traces of it present in some of my posts, but lately, I've been really wanting my writing to be more faith filled( Don't get scared, I promise, I won't be preaching to you! Can I get an Amen up in here!) For the last few weeks I have been feeling a tug at my heart, an almost underlying sadness, that I can't quite seem to put my finger on. Could it be hormonal(I'm at that age), the weather (NJ's never ending winter)? Could it be the fact that there are so many people close to me that are struggling financially, physically, and emotionally? I don't know,but I do know that I am definitely burdened by all of these things, and I believe it goes much deeper.

I have officially named the Easter season, my weepy time of year, as I think about the sacrifice that Christ made for me. Good Friday has always wrecked me spiritually and emotionally(in a good way). When my brothers and I were kids, my mom would take Good Friday very seriously. Between 12 and 3, she would have us sit quietly and separately to think about what Jesus did on the cross for us. Can we be honest?, at that age I didn't find the whole idea that appealing, or fun, to say the least, but I'm glad she took the time to teach us about Jesus, because as I got older and my faith grew deeper, I realized how much He is in everything I do. He is what drives me everyday. He is the reason, I am who I am.

As you all know from my last post, I have been working through some "stuff", and it always amazes me how God  brings me answers right when I need them, whether it's through His word, a song, a word of wisdom from a friend or a fellow blogger, or even from the pages of a magazine (yes, that has happened). It's important to Him that I don't stay stagnant in this negative thought process. I am important to Him, (and so are you, by the way. xo), and at the end of the day, that's all that matters, right? So, as I have been pondering these things, and asking God how this fun little space I call Fabreview can make a difference in this world, the word encouragement keeps popping into my head.
If even just one of you has been encouraged by what I pour out onto these pages, I will be happy girl.  I'm not quite sure where God is taking me or this blog, but I know I am enjoying the ride, and I hope you are too!

So consider Fabreview a place where you can come, kick off your heels, and get encouraged. I'm here, whether you need prayer, an encouraging word, and of course some fashion and beauty tips!

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedules to stop by "happy place", and for allowing me, to be me, by sharing what's on my heart. You're the best!!!

For more encouragement and inspiration, check out some of my fav's:
Kristi Waite from Grace Supply Co., Jessie Artigue from Style and Pepper. The Influence Network, Kathleen from Carrie Bradshaw lied, and Kim from Oh Sweet Joy.
These two fabulous ladies have inspired and encouraged me beyond words. xo



Have an amazing weekend Everyone!
I'm ready for some sun!
