Beyonce has nothing on Anita Renfro and us wrinkled ladies!!
I often lament my wrinkles. They started to reveal their ugly selves when I was in my 30's. The only benefit to those additional creeping pounds from my 40's is that my wrinkles smoothed out a bit. I heard somewhere that middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle.
My mother-in-law is 92 (don't tell her I told you), but the woman has NO wrinkles. Really! And don't tell me that worrying give you wrinkles. It's her hobby. She'd win the gold if worrying was an Olympic event, yet her face is as smooth as it was 40 years ago. There oughta be a law!
I, on the other hand, am not a worrier, but have a lovely wrinkle collection! They say wrinkles are just "antique smiles." Who knew I was an antique collector??
Someday though, I'll be wrinkle-free!! Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. Eph. 5:25-28
When I wash stuff, I create wrinkles, but when He does the cleansing, He removes them! Along with all our other imperfections. Can I hear an Amen?
