The weather was cliche Paris with beautiful skies one moment and bursts of rain moments later. After watching Midnight in Paris the night we arrived, Paris really is most beautiful in the rain. Because of the chilly weather, I layered my favorite fur coat, over by denim chambray shirt, and striped swing tank (All Nordstrom). My fashion goal for the season was to be ‘Sporty Chic’ by sporting sneakers with street style. The easiest way for me to do this was by purchasing black Nike’s that would match with everything. My new fashion goal is to be totally Parisian. A girl can dream right?
The Arc de Triomphe in Paris triggered my memory of a topic I studied earlier in the year, the Ark of the Covenant in the Bible. The Ark of the Covenant was the sacred chest which held the tablets of the 10 Commandments. The Arc and the Ark are both symbols of great power. Following the 10 Commandments sounds like a cake walk. Don’t murder. Check. Don’t Steal. Check. What about honor thy mother and father? What about keep the Sabbath day? Whoops I have messed up in more than one place. Remembering these simple commands of God will help us all live happier lives!
Have a sparkling week!
