Posts Tagged ‘laughing’

i had one of those mornings today

i was standing in front of my closet

surveying stacks of sweaters and a neat row of blouses on hangers

wondering – what should i wear?

to be honest, i’m so tired of looking at those same sweaters, day after day

sick of wearing them for the last 5 months – ugh!!

i’m ready to donate them and start over

i finally walked out the door after 5 changes of clothes

did you ever have a morning like that?


“She is clothed with strength and dignity;”  – Proverbs 31:25


this passage in Proverbs is speaking of the woman (wife) of noble character

she is busily providing clothing for her family, but she herself is clothed with something more important

strength and dignity


so that’s her secret!

i always wondered how that woman did it – the list of her virtues is admirable

but the things she accomplishes everyday are rather daunting to try to live up to

she was clothed with strength and dignity


that’s something we can pray for –

strength to get through the many things that need to be done today

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.” Isaiah 40:31


strength to face whatever challenge God has put in your life

“I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13


and there’s more to that passage from Proverbs:

“She is clothed with strength and dignity;  she can laugh at the days to come.” Proverbs 31:22

by wrapping ourselves in the strength we receive through Christ

there’s no need to worry about what tomorrow may bring

no worries

just trust


“the LORD, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.” Isaiah 22:12

“Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

Psalm 73:25-26


so today let’s wrap ourselves in God’s strength

and do some laughing


that’s much more important than what’s in our closets

blessings cont.
