Five Minute Friday
Joining Lisa-Jo for Five Minute Friday. We write for five minutes on one word.
Today’s word is:
Seventh grade. John Jones Elementary School in Gadsden, Alabama. My mama should have killed me that year.
Every morning I walked into the kitchen where she made a hot breakfast for four kids and two adults. I asked the same question every morning.
“What should I wear today?”
Every morning! And every morning she made great suggestions, but I disagreed. I found a flaw in every suggestion. My brothers, husband, and probably a few more folks would agree that I have a tendency to argue. (tongue in cheek here)
The thing about this daily ritual? I still have to make those choices. Every morning I go to the closet, stare at the choices, and have a decision to make. I have to choose what to wear.
Have you read Colossians 3″ 9-14 in The Message?
God has a wardrobe already picked out for us. And it doesn’t change every day. I only have to choose to put these clothes on. These are the beautiful clothes; these are the clothes to grow into!
- Quiet strength
- Patience of Christ
But regardless of whatever else I put on?
It’s my basic, all-purpose garment. I should never be without it.
I am thankful to have discovered this Scripture with new eyes. I pray I am still growing into this wardrobe.
