So here we go:
Brian feels that he needs to start wearing his suit more often for church. He puts on his $400 suit I bought for him 5 years ago and he looks like a little kid wearing his dads church coat. The thing is GINORMOUS on him.
Me: You can't wear that. You look like a little kid.
Brian: I know, but I am the only guy in there that is not wearing a suit coat.
Me: You look ridiculous!
Brian: What am I going to do?
Me: Well, I remember Fred (name changed) got a really nice suite at the DI for like $40. We should do that. We cannot afford to buy you a new suit right now. So either you go looking like a kid in his dad's jacket or go with just your white shirt or we can get you a suit at the DI.
Brian: This does not comfort me.
Suzanne: Do not worry, we can go to the Murray one, there is bound to be really nice suits there.
Brian: Yes, I am sure the Murray DI has much better suits. (Turns around and leaves the room disheartened).
Suzanne: (Me replying to him as he leaves) Well at least Frank looked really nice in his DI suit.
In the end, it really doesn't matter what Brian wears to church. It is the Man inside the white shirt or suit that really matters. Joy is not found in the clothing he wears. It is the person inside that matters. Brian brings joy into our home because of the man he is everyday. He is a wonderful husband, father, friend and leader. It doesn't matter what he looks like, what matters is who he is and what he does. And for me, it brings me great joy!
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
