Sag Harbor Should Change Their Name!!!

O.K. Enough is enough. The mirror tells me I am old. I see all those ugly lines in my face. My bones tell me I am old. They creak when I get up! My muscles tell me I am old. I think you add more when you get old because I find more that ache. As if that isn't enough, now my clothes are telling me I am old!

While I was getting dressed for church, I happened to notice the label inside my jacket. Are you ready for this? The label said. Brace yourself. It may shock you like it did me. It said SAG HARBOR!!!

I know I sag in places. But, when your CLOTHES tell you that you sag, well, that's just too much! I think I'll send them an email protesting and ask them to change the name of their clothing.

From now on, every time I put that jacket on, my eyes will be drawn to the tag. SAG HARBOR. SAG HARBOR, SAG HARBOR. Why, it could ruin my day.

I just may have to throw the jacket in the trash. Better yet, I'll have a garage sale and sell it. At least maybe I can get a few dollars for something that insults me.

I surely do hate to "fess up" (that's southern for confess) and acknowledge I'm getting older. When even your clothes say you are old, I guess it's true!

The world would  tell us that truth is relative, that nothing is true in all situations. People are buying into this because, like me not wanting to admit aging, they don't want to admit there is a set standard, truths to live by, truths set by an Almighty God who created us all.

Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except by me." That is truth!

Non-believers, don't bank your eternal life (yes, that is true also) on worldly truth, relative truth.

Christians, never let the world steer you into truth that, in your heart, you know is not really truth at all. Live like you believe what you say!

Trying to walk in truth, Gloria

Thanks, Tina. Of course, you don't have to worry about sags yet. As for me, I guess it's better to laugh about it than cry about it!!! :D
