Christ Chic: Moments Like These



The hubby just returned from a business trip to Scotland.
He shared the story of one of his coworkers and the story was just too moving for me not to share with you.
His coworker was a self proclaimed agnostic.
(Stating facts...no judgement here:)
The coworker, let's call him Peter, told the hubby that he had an important event when they returned to Houston.

He was going to have his 1st Communion.
 The hubby laughed it off  (insert my fist) until he realized that Peter was serious.
Apparently, Peter went to Rome last year and of course he had to visit the Vatican.
I know I would. 

 Peter said he walked into the Vatican and for reasons unknown to him...he fell to his knees. 
He said he didn't expect it.
He later recalls the moment as God literally knocking him in the head. 
Today, Peter is enjoying his First Communion.



I'm not Catholic.
And I'm not trying to convert you.
Really, the message is for me.
I went to church today and didn't get anything out of the message.
(That happens sometimes)
But the story of Peter, my hubby's coworker, moved my spirit.


The fact that he didn't believe...had no intentions on believing...and just like that, his whole world changed. 
That's proof enough for me. 
I'm sending a "1st Communion" card to Peter.
Something so miraculous deserves to be acknowledged.

(Keep in mind that my husband is telling me the story so I'm positive important details were left out. Peter may have had cinnamon pecan pancakes with the Pope and that was left out of the story!)



If you're not into the message, at least enjoy my dress from Goodwill. It's one of my favorite finds.
Plus, I'm carrying the American Apparel "inspired" Reiko Red clutch that was named after me by DIY Raven earlier this year. She closed down her shop though:(




 For my new followers, my Christ Chic posts are usually just what I wear to church:)

Wow, what a great story Reiko! Sometimes God has to knock us down so that we can look up. Thanks for blessing my spirit with this story and the lovely combination of leopard and polka dots!!

I have my eye on the purple version of these shoes; are they tight on the toes?
