A Thought: Trends.

Just saw a feature about double waist jeans. Jeans button at the waist with another “pair” sewn in about hip line. The look is that you are wearing two pair, although only one pair of actual legs of the pants. They are selling for $695 a pair. It’s interesting what we find fashionable or important to have. I look back on my life and remember things I thought I had to have for happiness; brand jeans and gadgets the girls thought they had to have. These ‘things’ were to ‘complete’ our happiness. Of course, it was fleeting. In maturity, we now know things are temporary as is the happiness they bring. Deep JOY is only experienced in knowing Jesus Christ and leaning on Him for our contentment in life. Jeans can’t answer prayers; jewelry can’t solve problems; and gadgets can’t give guidance. Only the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit can do that! Have a joyful day!

Psalm 4:6 “Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity? Let the light of your face shine on us. Fill my heart with joy when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.”
