“Mrs. Gibson, are you a substitute for our class?”
“No, I am sorry. Not today.” Her lips turned into a pout.
“I sure wish you’d come to our class.” Another boy told me as we stood in the cafeteria of the intermediate school.
When I reached my 5th grade classroom assignment, a girl ran up to hug me. She looked up at me with a big smile, “You’re going to be our sub today!” A couple of others reached out to give me hugs.
Truth is like a vitamin to the soul.
Truth nourishes you, builds you up and strengthens you.
Truth exposes the lies you’ve believed.
Truth repeated daily helps you overcome negative thought patterns.
Truth sets you free and enables you to walk in freedom.
Think about the things that are true.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8(NIV)
Birds chirping. Wind gently stirring in the trees. Rich green everywhere I look. This is the nature walk I frequently enjoy along a creek that runs by our house. When I walk far enough down the road into a secluded section, the path becomes more wooded with trees lining both sides of the road.
When I used to walk, I’d often take my ipod with me to listen to books while I walk. This made my walk for exercise pass more quickly. I felt more productive since I could absorb wisdom and knowledge from the books at the same time on my walk.
“What is your name?” She smiled at me as I sat down my plate at the table to eat my lunch. I glanced over to the booth next to me and saw an elderly woman smiling at me.
“My name is Sharon,” I walked over to her booth thinking she must know me.
“My name is Marilyn,” she smiled at me. I realized when I arrived over there that I didn’t know her but to be gracious I went along with her.
“Good to see you!”
“I used to own a dress shop downtown so that must be where I know you from.”
“You’re styling. You look fabulous!” I complimented my young friend at a recent graduation party. She loves the latest styles and has a creative touch in the way she dresses. On her limited budget she searches out the sales and local resell shops to put together the cutest outfits.
Her mother, a friend of mine always looks like she stepped out of a fashion magazine. I enjoy their expression of creativity and beauty in the way the way mother and daughter express their individuality in their dress.
My sister and I sat in the lovely outdoor setting of the Carlsbad Inn in California gazing at the flowers and enjoying lively music from the sixties.
Suddenly, a woman with grey hair who looked to be about 75 rounded the corner. Her bright pink shirt covered her protruding tummy as she swayed from side to side to the music. She walked/danced in rhythm with the beat as she made her way to her family gathered on the lawn under the umbrella. The look of joy on her face captivated me and drew me to her charm.
What looks good on you? Do you like the color red, green or purple? Or any one of the wonderful colors we enjoy in clothing? When people say, “That color looks awesome on you!,” do you have a tendency to wear more of it?
A blog post by my friend, Tabbitha Easley, inspired me to think about the admonition in Colossians 3:12 to clothe yourself with humility.
What if we started saying to each other, “Humility looks good on you!” When we see someone walking in humility or behaving in humble ways, what if we admired it?
