Sunday Girl: March 20, 2016


By: Gabriela Yareliz

Semana Santa (Holy Week) begins. Easter weekend is coming. Easter and Passover always reminds me that God can do and does the impossible. It’s a reminder of His crazy love for us; a reminder that redemption has been completed; a reminder to rest in His provision and leading.

I haven’t been resting much, literally, (I need more ZZZs)– so the plan is to rest a lot this week. Time to take it easy and focus on health. Better sleep; better eating; and retraining and working out.


Bring out your best Easter dress. I love wearing pastel colors this time a year, no matter how cold it is.


Yesterday,  it was chilly as I was walking with some new friends. One of them said, “It’s like spring came and left, and now, winter came back and said, ‘Screw you!'” It feels that way. But I walked past an Episcopal Church with a blossom tree in full bloom, (I know that’s not the real name, sue me. I don’t know my trees. It was the one with the pink flowers…), and it inspired hope in me. We are almost there.


I hope you rest and find some magic this weekend.

This week, I was reading a lot about God and His name, I AM.

When Moses came across the burning bush that was not consumed and received his calling, God told him that I AM was sending him and was with Him. God is so powerful and amazing that the only thing that can define Him is Himself, explains David Limbaugh. I love this thought; especially now, as we approach Passover. Whatever you are going through, whatever you are facing, know that I AM has called you. I AM is with you. Remember that. He has seen your current situation and will lead you out of it.

Find your peace.

I am planning to.

Rest in I AM, this beautiful Sunday.

“But I will be with you, and this shall be the sign for you, that I have sent you… I AM WHO I AM.” Exodus 3: 12 and 14


PS. As you rest, check out the new pages on the Blog Roll. The Anthropologie Blog is new. The first three photos from the post are from Anthropologie, and the others from Tumblr.

Check out the other new addition, undrthepvmnt, a new creative project piloted by a friend of mine. I hope to be collaborating soon with my friend and having some of my photography on his page. Show your support!

PSS. Bringing this classic back: Rather Be

/If you gave me a chance I would take it, it’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it/
