My friend Terri over at "Your Friend From Florida" is doing a post called "Whimsical Wednesday". It's a lot of fun. Every week she posts pictures of some kind of interesting attire for women, and then we have to select the shoes we would wear with that particular outfit. You may want to scoot over there for a minute to see what the outfit is for today and make your selection between the three choices of very "lovely" boots to go along with the lovely black velvet jacket.
I am not going to share those particular pictures here, but thought I would do my own whimsical kind of post about my choice of attire on a day like today. Some of you may have already seen this on my Facebook page yesterday, but I thought I would write about it here today just because I wanted to.
This picture popped up in my "See Your Memories from four years ago" on Facebook,
Yes, that's me, sitting at my desk in my "office" at our previous home in 2016...
And I literally almost spit my tea out when I saw it, because of what I was wearing, because this is how I was dressed as I was reading my morning messages yesterday morning:
This is the very same flannel shirt that I devoted a post to a few years ago, when I first received it as a "post-Christmas" gift. You may want to revisit this as it probably has more less whimsical things to say...
I don't know what I will do when this shirt finally wears out. Someone suggested yesterday that it would make wonderful dust rags. Yikes, I can't imagine using this favorite shirt for dust rags someday...because dusting is something that I really don't like to do, and it would be such a waste of a beautiful shirt to tear it up into dust rags. I may have to make it into a pillow or something. Or a teddy bear. Before I die. I know many people make pillows or teddy bears out of a loved one's favorite shirts after they die. But I think I'd like to make mine before I die so I can enjoy it too. Crazy huh? Yeah, maybe, but this is "Whimsical Wednesday" and I am feeling quite "whimsical" as you can see.
Oh, yeah, I forgot about the shoes!! We must select which shoes we will wear with our outfit:
Not these shoes, because I finally threw them away not long ago. They were my favorite pair of Skecher's shoes that I wore around the house until they finally just couldn't be worn anymore:
Or maybe you'd like this pair of Skechers, my favorite pair for walking, as you can see it helps me to identify the size of pine cones that we find...which this pine cone would be a size 9 women's shoe size. LOL.
Okay, there you have my "whimsical Wednesday" offering. My apologies to Terri for doing something totally different than what I was supposed to do. But this is what I love to wear on these chilly winter mornings here in Florida.
I am my father's daughter. Daddy always had a favorite shirt, pants and shoes that he wore all the time and when we were his "caregivers" we could hardly get him to take them off to wash them. You may not totally appreciate or understand this, but when my daddy died, the undertaker wanted to know what we would like for him to be dressed in. We knew that Daddy was going to be cremated, so it really didn't matter what outfit he was wearing since we would not be having any kind of "viewing" before his burial. So, my sister and I were together at that moment, and we looked at each other and we both knew that Daddy would want to be "buried" in his favorite shirt, pants and shoes, so that is what we did. Sometimes I wish we'd saved the shirt to have as a keepsake, but then again, we both knew that Daddy would be most comfortable traveling into heaven in his favorite clothes, so that always makes me smile when I think about Daddy's heaven-bound outfit.
However, truly, what "outfit" are you wearing on your way to heaven? There is really only one outfit that will do, and that is to be clothed in the righteousness of Christ.
