Altogether Beautiful


"You are altogether beautiful, my darling, there is no flaw in you."

[Song of Solomon 4:7]


A few months ago, I had a spontaneous photo shoot with my sweet friends Suzanne and Isabel. The intent was to show all the millions of ways that one can wear a sarong. But honestly, this is no fashion blog so the post idea kind of went to the wayside until Katie at Hope Engaged decided to do a photo-shoot link up displaying how our God, the creator of beauty, delights in creativity! 

These pictures were taken all in my backyard in the beautiful Costa Rican morning sun. We narrowly dodged the afternoon rain.

With my wedding quickly approaching, I have been studying the book of Song of Solomon. It is a beautiful love story with our Bridegroom in Heaven and a beautiful example of how our earthly marriages ought to be.

God calls us beloved. He is lovesick for us. 
He has made us perfectly and is just longing for us to come away with him. 










                          

Isabel, Suzanne, & I

"My lover said to me, "Rise up, my darling! Come away with me, my fair one!"
Song of Solomon 2:10

    1. Thanks Katie, I was really glad to find your blog, too! Your story is so inspiring. I love how bold you are. I am actually still here in Costa Rica, teaching! I came to live here in January after studying abroad here last summer. It has been an incredible (but not always easy, of course) adventure. I can't believe that I've been here 7ish months already! I can't wait to read more of your posts.

    1. Thanks! You know what's crazy, there's a ton more ways, too, that didn't even make the cut, haha. My favorite use- a towel to sit on at the beach. The sand shakes of it easily & it doesn't get my shower towel dirty (an absolute necessity if sleeping @ a hostel)!

  6. That looks like a really fun project of creativity!! I love wearing sarongs at the beach--and they do provide some protection from the sun, so they're practical as well as comfy and pretty!
