What Not To Wear


On Sunday, I went to Alabama for a funeral. As I was packing up my stuff to go, I was thinking about how excited I was to be wearing this Ann Taylor dark blue suit that I had gotten for a dollar from a consignment pack-a-sack sale. I never dress up anymore, and it was kind of fun to be wearing something nice for a change. I was pumped about how cute I thought I would look, despite the fact that my white shirt has permanent stains all over it…I just planned on keeping my jacket on. On Monday, as I was getting ready for the funeral, I was picturing myself prancing around in my suit, hugging everyone I hadn’t seen for 6 months. I went to put on my shirt and jacket that had been hanging on one hanger together, and then panic struck…where was the other hanger that I had put my pants on? I ran out to my van to see if I had left them in there, but I knew I hadn’t. I knew they were hanging on my closet door in Nashville. I was kind of ticked at first because I had even ironed my pants. So, I had my permanently stained white shirt, my suit jacket that I couldn’t take off but is supposed to be part of a suit, and blue jeans, and that’s what I wore to the funeral. But even in this little thing, I was reminded of my pride, and I just had to laugh at how God is humbling me even in the small things.
