Did you think I was going to write about the foundation of faith, the foundation of Christianity, or some other weighty matter? I am writing about make-up. I went to a local department store to purchase Prescriptives foundation; they really corner the market on shades for near albino people like me. I told the clerk I would like to buy a bottle of “Real Ecru”, she look dismayed and said – THAT’S OUR LIGHTEST COVER, I THINK you NEED something with MORE coverage. I mean, seriously what a way to tell someone they have aged out of the lightest coverage and need something more along the lines of spackle. I thought 1 day you will have areas on your face which proudly display sun spots and wrinkles & gravity is not a theory, it’s a fact…everything from your forehead to ankles will succumb to it unless our Lord Jesus returns in the next 10 years. (Does anyone think I should repent?)
I decided to buy eye shadow while I was there, she gave me a sample of super line preventer or something like that, I had sales resistance, but I failed with the neck cream which promises huge results. I can’t believe I bought the stuff. I mean short of a team of people carrying my neck and chins around, I can’t imagine it looking much different than it does now.
All this being said, I want you to be assured; if Ike hits our area, I will be able to drink coffee using my coffee press and have good coverage in the foundation department.
To my sisters who live in the projected path of Ike, I hope these verses bless you as much as they bless me:
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings
Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.
