Her bridesmaid’s dress was too small. All the girls were asked to go to Denson’s to be measured, but this girl said she was too busy. So I emailed very detailed instructions on how to measure her body, very detailed instructions! My error was in “assuming.” I assumed she would know to use a specific measuring tape made for sewing and not use a YARD STICK. When I asked her exactly “HOW” you measured a body with a yard stick, she informed that it wasn’t really difficult. You just get a friend to hold a yard stick against your body and you walk in a circle around the stick. I can laugh now, now that sweet Betty has fixed our dress problem. God has given us tools to help us live the Christian life. God has given us His instruction book, the Bible, so we will know His plans and purposes. He also gave us the Holy Spirit to explain it to us, to teach us. God didn’t leave anything up to our own assuming. He gave us the right tools to navigate the Christian life.
