I don't know if I actually remember the story of Daddy, me and the dress, or if I've heard Mama tell it so many times, it seems like I do.
It was coming on winter in middle Georgia where we lived, and I was dressing to go outside to play. Of course, I put on a dress. Mama told me in no uncertain terms to go take off the dress, and to put on my corduroy pants and Buster Brown shirt. Evidently, I wasn't having any of that. I'm pretty sure there was some foot stomping involved.
My Hero! (I didn't realize until I was a parent that maybe Daddy did that to teach me a lesson about minding Mama. If so, it backfired.)
I still love wearing skirts and dresses, but it's coming on winter in the Midwest. (It makes Georgia winters feel like spring time here.) It's time for tights!
Okay, I'm convinced a man invented tights/hose. Really? Would a woman create a garment that's hot in the summer, cold in the winter, and requires the moves of a contortionist?
In case you missed Reflections from the Rehab Room, I had a complete knee replacement at the end of last May. My knee has been feeling so much better that I didn't think about its current limitations.
Oh my gosh, Dear Reader, I thought I was going to have to put my foot around my neck to get those crazy tights on. I was literally in a tight spot.
But, Dear Reader, God is good ALL the time, and ALL the time, God is good! The tights felt good (and looked pretty good, too).
Let him have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.
1 Peter 5:7 TLB
One of the buzz words in education for the last several years has been "problem-solving". (Wait a minute, is it one or two words if you connect them with a hyphen?)
I think God likes us to problem-solve. I don't believe He likes us to likes us to always be successful. The Lord loves taking care of us. He knows constant success can lead to arrogance. And that's never a good thing.
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
James 4:10 GNT
