Let's go back to the closet
Alright let's talk about a few things.
I've pondered quite a bit since yesterday's post.
I commented on facebook that several of the items in my closet are older than ten years. That isn't a lie. And in my defense if you look closely you will see long sleeves in the mix. I have very little stuff stored for winter. When I buy something, it is a multi-season piece. I can layer or wear alone. I've been D's wife for nearly twenty five years and I can't tell you how many times I've heard him say "you get what you pay for". He's right. But don't get me wrong, I don't buy expensive things. However, on those occasions when I have paid full price for something because it talked to me straight off the rack, it is still hanging in that closet and is nearly worn out.
I have one denim shirt that is my all time favorite. I bought it a long time ago, paid full price (from Old Navy) and it is still a go to. Same with my denim jacket. There is an elbow that has blown out of it but I refuse to buy a new one. In fact if I did it would probably have the elbow out too.
So much for the closet. Let's move to the weather. I think it was a rainy, cloudy, gloomy, mix since Monday. I was so ready to see the sun. I even threatened to move or take another quick trip south if he didn't show himself yesterday. Good thing he did. I was already making plans for crab claws & cheesecake. So much again for the treadmill right?
A sweet friend sent me a message yesterday morning that said "He knows the desire of our hearts." I replied, "Yep, He sure does." And that is exactly the truth. There are some days when I can't even wrap my mind around it. The fact that He cares so much about the small stuff. I believe that He will often give us the small stuff just so we will trust Him more with the big stuff.
That's all of my rambling for this Friday. Have a happy weekend. The forecast says it will be full of sunshine!!!
