Being a 'Domestic Engineer' and mother of five, the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of labels are the annoying little tags in the collars of dresses and shirts. Who came up with that bright idea? I suppose it seemed a good place to put them since you simply cannot avoid seeing (let alone feeling) them. I've noticed recently that many newer items have moved the tags to the inside side seem which is much more comfortable but harder to get to...I know, I know...just label me complainer! Hmmm
I wonder if I were labeled, what my Maker would write on mine. Perhaps it would read something like this:
Fashioned in Eternity
Previously washed in shed blood
with like sinners.
Clean feet as needed
in living water.
Will be removed promptly
and without wrinkles.
In this world I may not be trendy, but my Maker knows the 'style' that's always in and I hope that I wear my label where the would cannot avoid seeing (let alone feeling) it!
