What Not to Wear
My daughter and I used to watch nearly every episode of a show called "What Not to Wear". After seeing several shows with her I began to learn some things from the key points of each show. Life lessons from the world of fashion:) Things like:
1-You can change the way a person looks by changing their hair color and cutting it shorter. Doesn't help me as my hair is changing color on its own by going grayish white and if you cut it any shorter you'd be taking away the skin on my head! Ted knows what I'm talking about!! And when Carmindy does makeup and brings out the beauty that's already there, well it's just too bad I can't do that because for many of these women it's a game changer and a face changer!
2-Clothes that fit right can actually make you look better! Nearly my entire wardrobe fits wrong. As Stacy and Clinton toss out the lucky makeover participant to give them an update, I realized that they would probably throw all of my outfits away:(
3-Your clothes say a lot about who you are. No argument here... I just want my clothes to shut up and quit talking about me!
I believe that scripture tells us what not to wear as well. And thankfully, we are also told exactly what to put on. It says in Colossians 3:12 "Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." Just as your clothing expresses your personality, this wardrobe reveals your spirit condition. Wrap all of these things up in a coat of love every day and you will always be fashionable!
