Girls Will Be Girls
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair,
and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible,
even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit,
which is in the sight of God of great price.…
Thou art near, O Lord;
and all thy commandments are truth.
— Psalm 119:151
Good friends invited us to their cabin on a lake. There would be boating, swimming and fun in the sun. I planned to wear my long winter coat or maybe a choir robe. Not really. I knew you have to have a swimsuit on a weekend at a lake.
A friend loveth at all times. . . .
— Proverbs 17:17a
We had a little Friday morning riding club at the barn where we kept our first horse, Zippa Dee Dude. A bunch of us women decided to sneak away from our busy schedules and hang out with our horses once a week, just for fun.
(H)e hath no form nor comeliness;
and when we shall see him,
there is no beauty that we should desire him.
— Isaiah 53:2b
We gave our daughter Eden her dream car for her 16th birthday, It was a red 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse. I know: we are deranged, she is spoiled,
And behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years,
came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: . . .
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said,
Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.
— Matthew 9:20,22
