“Don’t become like the people of this world.
Instead, change the way you think.
Then you will always be able to determine
what God really wants—
what is good, pleasing, and perfect.”

    ~ Romans 12:2

    Immediately I thought of Flannery O’Connor’s paraphrase of John 8:32: You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you odd.

    Snicker. My favorite thing today.

    (And, appreciate the one’s footwear attempt.)

      Lyla,

      That is a prosthetic for the Polly. I’m serious. The doll’s leg popped off at the knee, so that doll wears the one boot.

      Which one are you?

            Finally broke down for the haircut. I’m not sure I could pull off the wild hair now.

            I loved those as a kid though. I’m glad they made a comeback.

    I’m the one with pink hair. Ha! Awesome photo idea to illustrate the verse. “Good, pleasing and perfect.” That’s what I want, too.

    Well, every now and then I do feel the urge to dye my hair fuchsia. 🙂 But I HAVE had a Tina Turner-ish ‘do before. Kind of.
    Much love to ya.

    I used that scritpure in a recent post, it sat with me for days. But your take on it says it all. You’re so creative!

    I reckon I’ve had every hair color up there at one time or another… tweety bird yellow in high school and even that pink bit in jr. high, but I don’t see any fire engine red like I had in college.

    It’s a good thing I’m all grown-up now. 😉

    You musta used a lot of double-sided sticky tape to keep them all on the wall like that. Sorta like what we use to stay stuck to God, aye?

    Blessings.

      I’d like to see some photos of that, Darlene. 🙂

      Regarding the photo, I set the dollies on a white blanket on the kitchen table, and shot from the top. Much easier than taping to the wall. 🙂

    {{giggle}} Such a fun and creative way to illustrate the scripture! I think I’m the one Lyla mentioned: the broken one that was put back together! Loved this! Bless you!

    I’m second from the left on the top row, but I always wanted to have the bottom right one’s hair… God really does know best, doesn’t He?

      Yes, Megan. And just a very small sampling of their Polly Pocket dolls (They are about four inches tall). They have an entire Polly Pocket village, which they’ve made out of Jenga blocks, Legos, etc. They have a shopping mall, library, book-production factory, church, bank, restaurant, apartment building, train station, doctor’s office, animal babysitting service. 🙂

        My daughter did Pollys for a while. But she never thought of the animal babysitting service! Although last summer, she was old enough to do it for real.

    What a great way to illustrate this verse Jennifer. I found a box full of those little beauties in the attic when we were packing up to move.

    One of our everyday-needed remembrances. So hard to focus on our Lord and HIS way of life for us when we are flooded with those other “wonderful” options. The end of the day can truly and easily be a repenting time.
