Burlap Faith vs. Blue Denim Faith

wood 2 

Burlap is good if you want to see through something,

Or if you want water to leak through,

But it’s not much good at keeping you warm

Or holding up when you’re working hard

Like when you’re on your knees all the time.

 

Denim, on the other hand, is sturdy and strong,

And even when it finally gets a hole in it

You can patch it with more denim

And the patch holds just fine.

 

Burlap, like doubt and unbelief

Doesn’t wear well

Or feel comfortable

Or look particularly fashionable

 

Denim, like faith

Is durable and lasting

Feels better the longer you wear it

And never, ever goes out of style.

This old notebook was falling apart at the seams

denim

And this recycled “redeemed” denim rescued it,denimcircle

Made it useful again,

Which is what faith in the Living God does for us.

 

May God bless you with a denim faith

As you walk through this chapter in your life with Him!!

#Carpediem — #Friday is Blue #Denim Day!

Seriously, very few people have trouble celebrating Friday, at least in our part of the planet.  It’s kinda like not looking forward to spring break, summer vacation, or snow days (as if you can’t tell I work in the educational system…) 

But there’s really more to Friday then just waiting for the clock to say “quitting time”.  Friday is officially Blue Denim Day!  Think of it—what other material is as strong, as well as versatile, as good ole’ American blue denim?

That’s why Friday is the day to accentuate, appreciate, and otherwise celebrate those people, ideas, and activities that bring durability and stability to our lives…

…as well as to be one of those people!

If you’re celebrating Blue Denim Day, tell me how…  —dawnlizjones
