Ladies, thanks to today’s advertising media we can now have perfect armpits. I kid you not! Frankly, I do not remember the product that will deliver this beauty but I do recall the model. Her skin was flawless; even skin tone, smooth and velvety texture and nary a hint of stubble! Her armpits!
Can you believe it?! Is it any wonder we are obsessed with how we look?
Yes! Ten years ago I could comfortably wear a size 2 jeans; today, some days, I can barely zip a size; well, you don’t need to know that! 🙂 What happened?
Something the advertising media misses conveying by a country mile! Real life. Real people with real lives – no airbrushing available!
It’s all about you don’t have enough. Not enough car. Not enough house. Not the right shampoo. Not the right clothes. Not the right mascara and your lips aren’t red enough or shiny enough either! Your cell phone cover is plain. Here, eat this hamburger and you’ll be sexy. Here, spend 15 minutes on our machine and you can work off that hamburger effortlessly. And it goes on and on endlessly – sitting on your comfortable, well-loved couch, you are told you need a new one; on your way to a party in your flattering best on a great hair day in your paid for vehicle, you are told your clothes are inferior, your hair is flat and fly-away and your car is nothing less than an embarrassment!
And I am sick of feeding on their steady diet of dis-contentment!
Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Isaiah 43:4 Because I regard you as valued and honored, and because I love you. . . .
Ladies, (Guys too) that is GOD talking! To you and me!!
Philippians 4:19 Moreover, my God will fill every need of yours according to his glorious wealth, in union with the Messiah Yeshua.
Psalm 84:11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Psalm 27:4 Just one thing have I asked of Adonai; only this will I seek: to live in the house of Adonai all the days of my life, to see the beauty of Adonai and visit in his temple.
When this is true of me, the advertisers can digitally correct their models and paint their products any way they choose and I still won’t come up short! 🙂
I like this! on this 29th day of 2014,
