On the Journey...

I could not believe what came out of his mouth, let alone that he said it in front of the whole church!! “Fashion statement”?! Out of his mouth!! I feel the need to tell you that when he got out of the car to pick me up for our first date, he was wearing green plaid pants and a purple/violet/lavender striped shirt!! Fashion statement!! He gave me a Bible as part of my Christmas that year, and that’s when I knew there was a lot more to him than any “fashion statement”! Let’s fast forward about two years into our marriage: (yep—I married him in spite of the purple/green/stripes/plaid combo) he actually bought a rosy, sorta pinkish liesure suit—remember those? Fashion statement!! I have to laugh when I think back on these things. We laughed last Sunday at the fashion statement. Laughter is a wonderful gift from God. He grants us the ability to laugh out loud at ourselves in safety of family and friends! What a blessing to be able to laugh out loud—especially at ourselves. God’s graciousness is demonstrated through us by the peace and presence of the Holy Spirit. 1 Peter 3:3 & 4 says: “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” I’m sure that we have all heard the old adage: it takes one to know one….Oh, I think I forgot to mention the yellow socks…fashion statement. We are all on His Journey…Just sayin’… Submitted by Bernie Miller
