I love putting on lipstick. I also like lip gloss. I have one of them on, most all the time. There’s just something about applying lipstick, that is kinda like a sedative. I can be having a bad day at work. But then, take a minute out to re-apply my lipstick & I just get a better perspective. Weird, I know.
I told Miss Neenee the other day,
“Look at this new lipstick I got”
I proudly held up my tube of dollar store lipstick. Then, I started painting my lips.
I said,“ Ya know, I don’t know about the color, though. It kinda makes me think of the lipstick funeral homes put on dead people.”
Without missing a beat, my Miss Neenee says, “Yet you still put it on.”
How many things do we do in life that we know might be wrong or not flattering or not advantageous for us, however, we just keep on keeping on? Like the fat free, sugar free candy I eat. That always makes me lose weight. What?? That candy’s not sugar free?? That explains a lot. Or it really could be anything. Ask an alcoholic. Do they know what they are drinking is not good for them? Sure they do. What about a drug addict? Don’t you figure they know what they are taking is not what they should be doing? I would say a big probably. However, it’s something inside of them that makes them continue on. Even though knowing, nothing good is going to come out of it. Can I add complaining to this list? Lord have mercy, some people complain & have a negative attitude toward any & everything. Gossipers & people who are judgmental know better. They just do it.
When you get tired of doing things, that’s not helping you none, Jesus has a fix for it.
Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (KJV)
We can go to Jesus anytime, anywhere. He is the true One who will give us rest from our vices. Only in Him will we have peace & contentment. What are you waiting for?
I am so glad you stopped by to visit with me today. It has been a beautiful day, here in northeast Mississippi. My flowers are growing in the yard. Good times. Come back when you can stay longer. As for me, I have to be going, because I should be washing clothes.
