days 2-4 of 40
day three was even easier.. i had a terrible migraine and was bedridden all day. no problem being nakey faced! gosh it was a dozy. today is day four and i'm still experiencing the aftermath of the migraine. stayed in bed until 12:49pm (not sure why i remember exact times like that, i just always have) then husband came home at 1:40 for lunch and helped me bathe and get back to resting. now i do feel a bit better. i was even able to dry and straighten my hair. i decided i need to start doing my hair and "getting pretty" instead of taking the easy road of just pony tails and "giving up" on myself just because i can't wear make up. that's not the point.
i'm quickly learning i wonder way to much what others think of me and how others view me. also that make up is totally a god in my life, taking place of the God i want in my life.
when i'm in public with my bare face i am thinking things like "they probably think i'm being lazy today" or "i bet she'd be hot with make up on" (how vain am i!) or "wow she's got some serious pimples" instead of me thinking about each of them and perhaps how i can serve them and show them Christ's love. no, no, i'm too busy thinking about how i could look.. with make up on.. that's not messed up at all.. gesh!
i am excited to face the outside world proudly with my bare face. (today anyway. confidence comes and goes) and just be thankful for the way God made me. He likes me this way, obviously, or else He would'a made me differently!
here is my happy day 4 face!
