This is papa's Irish Spring Body Wash it has an "8 hr scent system". It works great when taking a shower.
Recently Derek, Scott & Darla's young man that is now going into his teen years, took a shower at papa's house when visiting over Labor Day weekend. He used papa's Irish Spring. When he had finished he remarked; "Now I smell just like papa!" We all got a kick out of that - but then I began to think ---
If Derek took his notebook and followed papa all day - would papa be a good example of what a Christian should be? What would he write in his notebook?? Paul, in God's Word instructs us to be good examples so others would see Christ in us and that if they followed us we would lead them in the proper path. I wonder - am I a good example?
Lets see, I wonder what Derek would put in his notebook if had I stood there complaining to my neighbor about the worship service at church? Music was too loud, No Piano or Organ, way too contemporary for me sounded like "bar room" music. What if Derek heard me complain about the pastor? He just preaches too long - needs more depth in his sermons. Hummm, I wonder what Derek would put in his notebook if I had started my day in a hurry and didn't take time for at least a few minutes of personal devotion time with Jesus? What if Derek would hear me humming all those good ole Country & Western songs all day and not some of those Christian lyrics I hear on mama's radio? Oh yes, one more thing, my TV - what was that program I was watching???
At the end of the day was I pleased that Derek said: "I want to be just like papa!" ?
