I'm the worlds worst and worrying what folks will think of me. When I meet new people I always try to put on my best personality, but somehow what they get is just the same old Phyllis. I don't know why I even bother to worry.
This reminds me of the day a friend of mine and I found ourselves eating lunch at a local tearoom and the proprietor came over to ask where we were from. When we told her she said she knew a little girl that had moved to Thomaston and asked if we knew her. When we said we did, she asked, "does she still put on?" Well, the term "putting on or put on" in the South means that you are pretending to be something you are not to make people think more highly of you. We laughed, smiled then sniggered and admitted she did still 'put on. Silly us, or I should just say silly me.
I catch myself from time to time 'putting on. The thing is, I shouldn't because in the end it doesn't matter what others think of me, it matters what God thinks of me.
