Wordless Wednesday~For Elle

Turn it up readers!
Sometimes when I want to be nearer to God, I wait until 11:05am on a Sunday morning, and I pull up as close as I can get to the Macedonia Baptist Church in my hometown, and I roll the windows down in the car, and just listen...Now that's as close as I have ever been....This is one of my favorites.
I know it's Wordless Wednesday, but I would still like to dedicate this post to Elle, from Completely Preppy. Elle has flown the nest, and is literally on a road trip to the rest of her life. She has an exciting adventure awaiting her, and is fearless on her quest to fulfill her dream. I am so excited and proud of you Elle, keep going girlfriend, and don't you dare look back. I wish you all the best!
I hope every single one of your dreams come true, they do sometimes ya know? I love you, and will keep you in my prayers daily! This one is for you, now shine your little light!

Shine Baby Shine and that you did!! My Dear, I loved this WW! There's just something about light in darkness and it's representative of so many things. I guess so many things in my life anyways ;-) Shine Baby Shine!!... Yup, that's going to be my saying for the day!

What a fantastic tribute! This is my favorite of all your Wordless Wednesdays! Hats of to you, my friend (Never give up on your dreams!)!

Love every image. Can't even pick a favorite.

Favorite quote has to be that of the late and beautiful Marilyn Monroe. So, so true!

As I've said before, Wordless Wednesday has become my post (day) of the week. Mine today is similar to yours. :)

I wish I knew where to get that sign. I love it too! Which gives me the idea to try to paint a piece of wood. It would be hard to get the lettering just right, but it may be worth a try!

Bumpkin Babe, that is a one spectacular light show! I really love the couple kissing with the colored lights around them, oh so lovely!
I love your church story! I think one day you should fling the doors wide open and sing your song!
Smoochies
