Losing my Religion... and My Skirt
1) So Beverly will know she's not alone in this world,
2) and because I figure word's gonna get around anyway.
Yesterday I wore a new skirt to church. This was no ordinary skirt. I had actually stepped out and bought it from somewhere besides Target. It cost quite a bit more than I usually spend on pieces of clothing, but this was a one-time thing to which I believed I was entitled since I buy pretty much everything else at Target.
So I put the skirt on yesterday morning. It looked nice. It felt nice. We went to church.
During worship, Jenna was a struggle as usual. Chad and I took turns wrestling with her and trying to keep her happy. As the congregation stood after the sermon, I picked up Jenna and stood up. At this moment, our friend Scott Williams leaned over and whispered, "I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your skirt is about four inches lower than you want it to be."
I looked down and sure enough, my skirt had suddenly become very afraid of heights. Fortunately, my slip prevented the situation from becoming even more mortifying. I think that as stood up, Jenna's shoes got caught in the fabric and pulled my skirt down. I quickly got everything back into place and for the rest of the service, thought about all the cheap clothes from Target I bought over the years and how they had never failed me on such a grand level.
Later Scott said he didn't know if he should tell me or take a picture. He decided to tell me because he knew if I picked up Jenna again, "...we were going to have a funniest home video." Thank you, Scott.
So join us in the journey at Little Rock Church. At our church, you can grow in your relationship with God. You can deepen your relationships with your family in Christ. And if you're lucky, the youth minister's wife's clothes will come off right in the middle of church.
So this post won't end on such a horrifying note, here are some photos from the shopping trip I took with Julia on Thursday. She had the day off from school, so the two of us took Jenna to Mothers Day Out. It was also Chad's birthday, so we needed to go shopping. But where?
Here's Julia in her favorite Target aisle: Polly Pocket!
You know it's a good day when you're out of school, your baby sister is in school, and your hands are full of Target bags. (We did get Chad some non-Polly Pocket presents, by the way.)
