So a couple of days ago, I posted about cjane’s post about us girls and our sometimes-feeling of unworthiness.
Today in my devotions I read this:
“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, 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.”
1 Peter 3:3-4
Isn’t it great when the Bible gives you exactly what you need? I’ve read these verses probably hundreds of times, but it wasn’t until now that the last phrase, and the word worth, was the important part. Thank you, God, that you find us worthy.
I hope everyone’s having a great pre-Thanksgiving Day! I was planning on spending it alone, getting ahead with homework, and maybe some photo editing, but Chris just texted me that he’s coming home early! I guess the internet’s out over at his workplace, so he’s coming home to work from his laptop. Perfect! We can snuggle up with blankets and socks and uggs and our laptops for a wonderful rainy day.
And in case anyone’s wondering how those pumpkin chocolate chip cookies worked out… I’d say they’re okay, but not amazing. You can’t really taste the pumpkin so much. And Chris and the roommates didn’t seem too enthralled with them, so I saran wrapped the plate to take to Chris’ parent’s house tomorrow. But when I went downstairs this morning, the saran wrap was peeled off and about a third of the cookies were gone! Either Santa was here early, or one of my roommates liked them more than they said. 😉
