An older gentleman friend recently passed away, and it was a true “home going” for a wonderful Christian man. Asa Holleman had come to know Jesus in his thirties and gave his whole adult life to serving him through his business and vocational life. He was 82 when he died, and he left behind a wonderful family and the great love of his life, Billie, his wife of 62 years. He sure knew how to love that sweet lady, and those two gave all of us something to talk about. They were still flirting with one another until the end.
Besides being known for how he loved his wife, Asa will always be remembered for being a snappy dresser. I think I’ll always picture him in his bright green sport jacket and cream colored pants. Not everyone can get away with an outfit like that, but he sure could. It went well with the twinkle in his eyes and the smile he always sported. He pulled it off with warmth and charm.
I’ve always kind of wanted to be a snappy dresser myself, but the truth is, the closest I’ll ever come to it is by HAVING a snappy dresser.
I’m talking about the one in my bedroom. It’s the one that is currently under a layer of dust, littered with receipts and loose change, and in desperate need of an overhaul. Today it’s more like a gauche dresser.
Today’s Small Thing is to clear off your bedroom dresser in a snap! I know mine will only take a few minutes to look dapper again. A light dusting, a quick removal of the miscellany and a deft straightening of the decor will have my dresser back in style.
