You know what's been interesting about this whole What I Wore Wednesday link up, is that is has made me view getting dressed in a new light. It makes me desire to dig through my clothes to come up with new combos, to wear jewelry besides just earrings, to make my hair look cute.
Even so, there are days in the week where that just doesn't happen. And that's okay. Probably even healthy. I am not always prim and proper, crisply ironed. I know I appreciate when I see those around me on a regular basis not dressed to the nines every time I see them, because that is part of real life.
I want to glorify God in all that I do, which includes what I wear, but my desire is for people to first notice my love for my Savior and for others, before they take note of what I am wearing. I want to put on an attitude each morning that matches Christ's--one of love, grace, patience, mercy & joy.
And I want to put on a smile....because as Little Orphan Annie once sang,
"You're never fully dressed without a smile."
