Today my husband and I have been married for nine years! As every relationship does we have had our ups and downs and are stronger for the bumps in the road.
I saw this phrase today: Life gives lemons to good people, bad people, old people, all people. Life comes with lemons. But we don’t have to suck on them.
Tonight we went out to a nice restaurant to eat. I felt a bit like a fish out of water as I’m trying to dress up and be fancy. I’m assuming growing up Amish makes me more comfortable with down to earth simple things.
I had my fingernails and toenails painted for tonight’s occasion. It so odd for me to have them painted. Its out of character for me to dress up. It feels strange.
I like to look good, but I want to do it without make up, heels and souping up my hair and nails. If I had my choice I probably would not dress up very often.
I’m probably uncomfortable because I’m insecure about how I look. I don’t really measure up to other women who get all dressed up. Its hard to be someone I’m not.
My Pearl is that The Lord made me just the way I am and I’m ok in His eyes.
