My agent has asked me to send her a black and white picture to put on her site. I'm a little behind on doing that because I'm considering going to one of those places that doll you up and make you look better than you are. The only reason I'm debating at all is I fear that, after the book is out and I go to speaking engagements (see, I'm thinking positively here), they'll see me and ask, "Oh, are you Gloria's mother? I didn't know you were coming." After a statement like that, do you really think I would tell them it was really me? I don't think so!
I guess I've made my decision. I'm going to the cosmetic isle at my local drug store and search for some products that help improve your looks. That's as far as I'll go. At least, the old statement, "What you see is what you get," will hold true when folks meet me.
Sometimes, in our spiritual lives, we try to "cover up" who we really are, too. We talk the right talk and do the right things but the "real" us, the one inside, is far from what we portray on the outside.
No amount of cover up can keep God from seeing who we really are. Be willing to acknowledge the real you to God and let him do his "makeover" on you. The great thing about that is, you'll look fabulous spiritually!
Wanting to look fabulous spiritually more than physically, Gloria
