I'm going to experience a trauma today. I have to go to the doctor.
The trauma is not really about going to the doctor but the fact that I have to get on the scales and someone will see how much I weigh. I don't even allow my husband to see the scales when I get on them! I don't have the courage to ask the nurse if she can go into the other room and I'll come out and tell her how much I weigh. I doubt she would think too highly of that idea.
Since I have to get on those dastardly scales, I try to do everything I can to try and hide my true weight. I wear the lightest clothes I can. I choose my shoes with care. Do you realize the wrong shoes can add two or three pounds to your weight? I always try to schedule early morning appointments so I can eat breakfast after my appointment. Don't want those eggs and bacon adding extra pounds! See what I mean about going to the doctor being traumatic!!
Unlike when I go to the doctor, when I go into the presence of God, it is not traumatic. I don't have to try and hide anything. No need to even try. He knows me better than I know myself. And he STILL loves me. Totally awesome!!
Thankful I don't need to try and hide things from God, Gloria
