The Reason For The Season

Today's outfit shots were taken at Cebu Grand Convention Center after I enjoyed a hearty dinner buffet. It cost P650 per head, but with my tiny frame, I don't think I ever get my money's worth at any buffet. Don't get me wrong, I eat a LOT. I eat so much that people who don't know me are always shocked at how much I eat. However, I can't eat so much in one sitting. But I sort of get hungry every 2 hours. So basically, I eat frequently but you can't overload me with too much food at one time. Okay, I don't know why I just explained my eating habits to you all. On to the outfit, shall we?

Royal Blue Flounce Skirt from Forever 21
I'm wearing my newly purchased royal blue flounce (I'm not really sure if that's what you call this sort of silhouette) skirt. I love how comfortable this skirt is but at the same time, it's dressy with its extra pretty pleats without even trying. So I paired it with a simple white tee as I didn't want to go overboard. Also wearing my most comfortable pair of heels that I also wore in THIS POST.
So it's Christmas in a couple of days and although being excited about the food, presents and parties is well and good, it's most important to remember the reason for the season - and that's Jesus! Mankind, being sinful, needed a pure Savior to pay for our sins in order for us to be reconciled with God. Because one sin - just ONE sin, is enough to send us to hell. But "God so loved the world that He gave us His only son, that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) And so Jesus was born in this world, and came to seek and save the lost (that's us). He died a painful death on the cross, carrying the burdens of our sins, as the ultimate sacrifice. So that's it. The price has been paid. All you have to do is pray - confess that you are a sinner, and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. There is no sin too great that He cannot forgive. :)
No matter what you're going through, know that there is a God up there who loves you! Merry Christmas everyone. :)
