Your Sunday Best

Okay—this is Easter-Palooza Part 2--
The last installment of Easter Pics…I promise.
Make sure to check out Eggstravangaza Part 1 and Part 2
and Easter-Palooza Part 1.

But I also have a little message for you at the end.
So make sure to read till the end…
Don’t let those cute llamas distract you!

This was not the best picture of me…where are my eyes?
But it’s the only one where all children are looking at the camera.

Yes… we were all decked in our Sunday Best, indeed.
But what does it really mean to wear your Sunday Best??


Does Jesus really care what we wear to church?
I think the answer is No
Though I do think it is honoring to the King to show up
in a manner worthy of worshipping Him. 


More importantly, I think He cares more about
what our heart is wearing…
Humility, Worship, Faith, Trust, Joy, Hope, Kindness, Love
I believe that Jesus’ fashion choice for “Sunday Best”
would be a “Suit of the Spirit
(I know that was super cheesy)

So, more than our Sunday Best,
He cares about our Monday best, and our Thursday best….
What are you “wearing” on those days?

It was nice when we all got out of our Sunday Best,
and enjoyed a nice Family lunch together…

What was even better was that even though
we had changed clothes…
We still had our “Sunday Best” on in our hearts

Because being a Christian isn’t about donning your best church attire.  It’s about walking the walk, and living out Christ to those around you.  My Faith in Christ isn’t just something I do on Sunday…it is who I am…every day of the year. 

So, What about you…today?
Do you have on your “Wednesday best”?

  1. Beautiful photos! Did you get the little man's outfit from The Children's Place? It reminds me of the colors in my daughters dress from there.

    Also, thank you for your feedback on my blog. That was EXACTLY what I was looking for. I appreciate it!

  3. Thanks for becoming my 20th follower!! Yah... A major milestone!!

    Your pics are beautiful. And what a great reminder- it's not what's on the outside, but what's on the inside. In the frazzled rush of life we often times forget what's really important. Thanks.

  6. Okay so I just have to know...where did you find that adorable yellow sweater vest? That must be the most popular sweater vest ever made. I have three other friends that all dressed their boys in it Easter Sunday. Too cute! Also, mind if I steal your Easter-Palooza title? I still have tons of pics to post myself.
