a genuine smile

The most beautiful garment

that a lady can put on

is a genuine smile.


The LORD gave me this quote a couple of weeks ago while I was pondering the dress (or lack of dress) by certain ladies on my route.  I realized why he gave it to me when a self-conscious lady in our church started asking me questions.  I told her the above quote and it seemed to be a blessing to her so I thought I would share it here.


Doesn’t this run contrary to the system of the world?  Just look at any fashion magazine, clothing store, or just go in a supermarket.  Ladies are obsessed with dressing attractively and will spend a small fortune doing so.  Men who pay attention to the clothes rather than personality are just as much to blame for feeding the frenzy.


Peter writes that it’s a meek and quiet spirit which the LORD finds attractive in women, I Peter 3:1-5.  So ladies, dress attractively.  Put on a genuine smile, a meek spirit, and a quiet….   ummm….


….never mind.


Have fun and stay busy – Luke 19:13
