30 DoT: {day 6} an article of clothing

My tried and true, way too big, rough around the edges, giver of warmth, but most comfortable thing I own...Taylor University sweatshirt.
I remember purchasing it in our little bookstore on campus.  I should not have splurged on it, but I did.  My guess is that it has paid for itself by now with all of the wearings I have gotten out of it.
Maybe why this sweatshirt holds a special place in my heart is because it represents the most amazing college years a person could have in life.  There is little left to represent those years for me and numerous others due to circumstances out of our control, but that's a long story for another day.
Only God in His infinite wisdom could have put this gal in just the right place at the right time in her life in order to learn, grow, experience, and enjoy all that my years at TUFW had in store for me.
Thank God for providing for me in the way of tuition, a job, friends, and the best of the best in Bible professors!

They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
