Working Hard or Hardly Working?

shirt: forever 21
black jeans: forever 21
boots: reflection…a little store in our mall
I must first start this post off by saying I am so sorry for not posting something yesterday. It was such a busy day! I went from school, to work, to a CBU event that I had to help out at. It was so much fun!
My outfit of the day is one of those outfits that you fall back on. An outfit for those day when all you really want to wear is a sweatshirt, but the events for the day do not allow such clothing. It is an outfit that makes me feel somewhat comfortable, but is more suitable for when I have to see a bunch of people. Also, I am once again wearing that blush color that I love so dearly. And who is not loving the stripes that are so in right now!? I mean can I just get an Amen!?
One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone does not work hard. I have been taught from when I was very little that you do your very best. Colossians 3: 23-24 says “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” This is a verse my father taught my sister and me when we were very young. It has been a huge influence on my work ethic. Everything that I do, I strive to do it 100%. So this explains why I cannot stand it when people do not give their all in their jobs. Especially at work where they get paid for doing a job. I had so much fun last night at the event with my soon to be new coworkers. They were all so nice and kind, and they all worked very hard. There was never a time they were just standing around. Everyone did their job they were assigned. I am sure that as the new year commences that there will be some time that my new coworkers are not always hard working, but I am very excited since we are all paid to work hard and get the event running.
This being said I think a challenge is in order. I think that as Christians the above verse requires us to work our hardest. So my challenge is that as believers in Christ we work our hardest unto him.
I am sad to say I do not have any pictures from the night. I was so busy helping set up and tear down that I did not have any time. I must get much better at that!
What are some of your pet peeves?

    I love your boots! And the question of your title was always one that my Mom asked us kids all the time when we were growing up and supposed to be doing our chores. It's a good reminder!
