Twinkies

Good morning!

Ok. You know it’s going to be a good day at work when this is the outfit on the classroom fashionista, and this is what you are also sporting for the day.

I was rocking it! LOL:)

Black shirt, leopard leggings, black boots. We were matching. We were twins.  We were twinkies!

Twinkies!  Remember those Hostess treats from when you were a kid? They came two to a package. Two little cakes, just alike. Golden Sponge Cake with Creamy Filling.

For the most part, when we are young we have no care in the world as to what we put together to wear on our own or what may come out of our mouths. It’s pure childhood innocence mixed with a little imagination. We are God’s unique masterpieces. As we mature, the world  knocks the wind out of our sails enough times that we learn to pattern ourselves after the popular kids, the in crowd, tv and movie celebrities to find our value. We lose our own identity only to mimic someone else that we may see as smarter, cuter, richer, funnier or cooler than we are. So we become Twinkies.

God is all about things in tandem. He first created Adam and Eve. Just look at the Ark. The animals came two by two. 🙂 But I’m pretty sure God doesn’t want us to be Twinkies. He wants us to be Honey Buns.

Individuals. Unique creations. Packaged individually. Soft on the inside and sweet on the outside.

I encourage each of us to save our Twinkies for snack time, and put away any thoughts we may have that we have to pattern ourselves after others more impressive than us to have any worth. Two are good, but there is only one us! That’s how God made us, each a unique creation, no two exactly alike. And we all know, God doesn’t make junk! No Twinkies!

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. If they stumble, the first will lift up his friend—but woe to anyone who is alone when he falls and there is no one to help him get up. Again, if two lie close together, they will keep warm, but how can only one stay warm? If someone attacks one of them, the two of them together will resist. 
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Love and laughter,

Sandy
