Wardrobe Malfunctions

If you know me at all, you know that keeping fashionable or stylish in clothing is not my thing.  I am certain that some of the choices I make in clothing could bring some embarrassment to those seen with me.  But I am writing today to confess my biggest wardrobe malfunction ever, and sadly one I repeat.  It was pointed out to me in Colossians 3 this week.  There I am told that as a dearly loved, chosen and holy daughter of the King that I am to be clothed with:

  • compassion
  • kindness
  • humility
  • gentleness
  • patience
  • bearing with others
  • forgiveness – of others, even as God forgave me
  • And the browning glory – I am to be adorned with LOVE, which creates unity.
In case I have that all in line (!) the writer gives me a few accessories to include:
  • peace- letting the peace of Christ RULE in my heart (“let it rule” – sounds like I don’t have to ask for peace – I just need to respond!)
  • thankfulness
  • absorption in the Word of God. 
While I still don’t expect to spend any more time pulling together the wardrobe in my closet, I think it’s time to invest a little more time in updating my spiritual wardrobe!

I am wife to one amazing man Jerry, sister to one very gracious woman, aunt to the 13 best nieces and nephews (including grands!) out there, and thrilled to be reconnected with our two "daughters of our heart!" Best of all, I am a child of the King. I don't always see myself as a princess, but my Dad is Creator, Sustainer, Lord and King. I was built to encourage and connect people - especially those affected by disability.
