Yellow Dress

Today was GORGEOUS.
I had lunch with famous and important people...
[who do work that I cannot and will not share here.]
All you need to know is that... all started out with a yellow dress.

So, I came home from that great lunch all stuffed and tired.
I changed into a yellow dress.

Then, this guy came by to talk to me.
I put on my youngest brother's football tshirt.

Then, I had to go outside.
[I can't go out with my legs showing.]

So, I put on some gray linen pants.
[The ones that Aura gave me. Thanks, Aura.]

I realized that my arms were still half bare.
So, I put on a tan cardigan.
[Ya know--the one with the hole in it.]

And while leaving the house,
I added some brown flip flops,
and grabbed my jean bag,
[yeah, I have one....]
but forgot my sunglasses. [Dangit.]

I looked like the frumpy, American idiot that I am.
And I.

I don't.
I was covered.
I was comfortable.
I was FAR from matching.

And it all started out with a yellow dress.


  1. I love your yellow dress story, and look forward to following your blog.


  2. Nice to meet you, Sarah. I've added your blog to my reader. Blessings...

  3. As an unapologetic blog junkie, I look forward to reading your posts each week! So far, I love what I see here.

  4. How very true, Sarah! Wherever we are we with people who are God's creation, therefore our brothers and sisters. The blessings far out weigh the inconveniences. God's love and the fact that God IS love is unknown even by many who say they are Christians.
    Looking forward to reading your blog!!

  5. I'm looking forward to reading your blog. We've been where we're at coming up on 13 years soon, and I am still always incredibly encouraged to read of other women's journeys.
    P.S. and although I'll also continue to look like the frumpy American I am, I bought some new boots last night for Love...

  6. great start to an interesting blog I will be visiting often!

  7. HA HA HA HA HA!!! LOVE IT!!! Can't say that I've left the house yet in gray sweats, but oh how I can identify! I'm waiting for the day that my west African prints completely clash between my skirt, top and headcovering! Looking forward to your adventures!

  8. Thank you!! I will continue to be uncomfortable, if need be, for the Love of God, Whatever it takes for others to be introduced to Him.

  9. Thanks, ladies! You are most welcome here! And Deborah! They are NOT gray sweats--they're linen pants... but now that you see that... maybe I shouldn't wear them to fancier things... thanks for the head's up. ;)

    And watch out, ladies--I'll be visiting you when you least expect it. :)

  10. I love this! The women here cover from head to toe as well...we're not required to but I can relate to having to adjust to a host nations culture. Thanks for sharing in this blog.
