It's Friday, and, as always, I plan to spend my weekend "naked." On the weekend, I can completely, 100% let down and be myself. I love my "Naked Weekends."
I get to be "au naturel." I love getting up on Saturday morning and skipping the mirror and makeup routine. I love spending the weekends (well, except for church) with minimal frills. I'm just me - unadorned. (Thank goodness my husband likes me that way).
I am "raw." I am completely myself because that's how my family loves me. I can be goofy and awkward and opinionated and grouchy and ignorant and . . . and . . . and . . .Just me, again.
I am "vulnerable;" I can be completely transparent with my feelings. I can openly express my love and pour out my heart and my most personal aspirations and deepest thoughts and emotions. I spend my weekends with family and friends who genuinely care.
I am "unconcealed." My total self is exposed. I remember a sermon a former pastor preached about praying naked. This phrase really stuck with me. When I come before God in praise and worship, I am completely exposed, unconcealed. He knows my "inmost being," and still loves me anyway. I guess I am naked before God all of the time, but on Sunday morning, when I can sing his praise in worship, I feel especially exposed to his eyes. Thankfully, I can remember his grace and the depth of his love.
"Oh Lord, you have searched me and you know me." Psalm 139:1
I completely enjoy my "naked" weekends.
