Friday # [This old thing]

Imagine this:  you are not allowed to spend money on clothes because you actually have more than enough.  So now you need to devise a plan.  I came up with a brilliant plan, I buy something I really like drop it off at my mom’s place.  When I go visiting her with my husband and kids, she normally says ‘O, by the way I saw these shoes and thought of you, so I bought it.’  My husband isn’t any the wiser and I got my new shoes.

But you know my mom moved away too far to visit on a regular basis so I needed a new plan.  Well, I still bought the things I wanted, placed it in the cupboard and waited a couple of weeks and then I would take it out in front of my husband.  Get dressed in my new clothes and if he noticed, and he does I would refer to it ‘as this old thing’.

One morning I took out an old outfit that has been sitting in my cupboard forever.  As I got dressed my husband said ‘hmm, seems like you been shopping, new outfit?’  To which I replied ‘this old thing.’  

He couldn’t believe that I have so many ‘old things’ in my cupboard.  Anyway he still isn’t sure of the outfit.

So there you go, ‘this old thing’ works great for me.  Hope this made your day, ladies, sometimes we need to make good plans.  Teehee

It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
