For me, 5 a.m. comes much too early! I need to be up, showered, dressed and out the door by 6:15 a.m. And I’m not an early riser/early bird by any stretch of the imagination! All the while complaining to my husband, “Why does morning have to come so early? I’d really like morning better if it came later in the day.”
For women, it seems we have so much to be concerned with:
* Hair just right – not too much curl, but not too flat
* Clothing – shoes match the pants match the purse, etc…,
* Make-up – not too much, but enough to know I have it on
I probably spend way too much time, energy and money on trying to look good for the public. It’s not like I’m going to be on television or be interviewed, so why all the emphasis on outer beauty? Could it be due to the media and outward sources such as TV and magazines?
What does Psalm 139 say about beauty? – “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
