~Miguel de Unamuno
When I read this quote this morning, I instinctively thought of my physical appearance. At age 62, I find I’m more and more “bothered” about how I look. The fashions dominating the retail racks were not designed with me in mind. The skimpy tops and skinny jeans just don’t work on a comfortable 62 year old body! And anything else I put on says loudly and clearly, FRUMPY! So I pout and whine and stomp my feet about these no nothing designers who will not do their part to help make me beautiful.
Fortunately, though, God isn’t a “no nothing” designer; He is the ultimate designer. Everything he has created has been done with me and my well being in mind. If I choose his line of adornments, I can’t help but be perfectly attired.
I just need to remember to go directly to Him and not be distracted by the glitz of the retail racks.
