A True Story from My
Book “Rescue the Stories Book One”
My Face Was RED !!
My mother did not wear make up and as a three year old
child, I think I may have figured out one of the reasons why!
One Sunday morning, to keep me occupied while we were in
church, Mother let me look through her purse.First, there was a small mirror that kept me busy for a few
Wait, what was this?I discovered a pretty little box with
something blushing red in it, and a tiny powder puff.Using the mirror, I began to apply the red
stuff to my cheeks.
The congregation had been asked to stand, while they sang
all the verses to one of the hymns.This
gave me adequate time to complete my make-up job!
As if my cheeks were not enough, some of the pretty powdered
rouge found its way to my chin.Almost
effortlessly, it seemed to glide right up to my forehead until my entire
countenance was a fabulous rosy-red.
When the song was finished and mother sat back down, she was
unpleasantly surprised to find that I had started an extreme make-over in
The back row giggled!
Mother quietly excused herself.She firmly escorted me to the bathroom where
some soap-and-water was applied, along with some vigorous scrubbing!Soon, I was back to my old, pale self.

Isn’t it a wonder how God forgives our silliness, and gives
us Grace to wash away that foolishness, so we can present a happy face to our world?
God is so kind!He
may even snicker at some of our childish escapades. For me, at least, there were not any
far-reaching consequences; my mother knew what to do, and I allowed her to help
me out of my situation, without fussing.
If we are willing to keep a flexible attitude, and are
constantly ready to clean-up and start over, it makes the lessons easier.A teachable spirit is what God desires of
us.The Bible calls it repentance:
stopping and turning, and going in the other direction.
If at times, you find yourself with a “red face,” be willing
to be escorted to The Fountain!Without
fail, the flow will wash you and make you presentable again.
Psalms 51:7Purge me
with hyssop, and I shall be clean: Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
