Buttons and Bows

Have you ever stood before your closet and said this? "I don't have anything to wear today!" I do this on a regular basis and miraculously never leave the house with having something on. Do I spent more time wondering what I'll wear than I actually spend putting on the things that my Savior wants me to wear? This verse comes to mind.

As God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourself with....( here 's the list of the things I should be concerned about) compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Colossians 3:12

If those attributes were sections of clothes in my closet, which ones would I pick each day? The same one over and over again? Or all 5? Or would I just skip them?

How about this verse? Over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:14

So, if I really care about what I am wearing it seems that if I put on these things that the Lord has for me, I will be the best dressed lady in town, no matter what my clothes look like. I like that!

Then even if Stacy and Clinton come hunting me down for "WHAT NOT TO WEAR", in my Lords eyes, I'll be styling! And really, His thoughts about me are the only ones that matter!

My Favorite Things

These are two candy dishes.
One from each
of my
Neither of them
had too many
fancies but, I
am blessed to have a few of
their things and they mean the world to me!
I use them as
often as possible
and to me, it's
like having a part
of them here!

April Showers

The ole' song says April Showers bring May flowers. Yes, I agree. Maw Maw was born in the month of April. She is a bouquet of the freshest sweetest flowers in heaven! She is my Mom's Mom and was one of the most agreeable people to be around I have ever known. I never saw her get frazzed or even too upset. I miss her phone calls, her voice, her hugs, her burps( the last few years..she was getting good at them) and just being with her. She is my hero.
Here is another April Shower bringing a may flower. I can't wait to see what kind of flower she is in heaven!She was born in the month of April also.This is my Grannie. My Dad's Mother. She demonstrated so much persistence and bravery. She was widowed at the young age of 42 and worked so hard to take care of her family. I miss her voice, her notes in the mail, her prayers for me( I know I could count on them) and just being able to go to her house and find her cooking something delicious in the kitchen. I would have to say she is my hero, too.
