Unnecessary Pain

I was looking at my Facebook page the other day and I saw a picture of a famous artist strutting her stuff and all her stuff was all tattooed up. I wondered to myself, why would I want to go through all of that unnecessary pain? Although I don’t have a tattoo, I have seen enough to know that it is not painless. I can only imagine the pain that she had to undergo in order to get all of those tattoos engraved on her body. Why, I ask?

Is it so that you can be different and stand out? Don’t you know that you are already different and fearfully and wonderfully made? Is it because you think that it is cute? It is not. To see if you concur, I will check back with you in 20 years. Is it because God said not to defile your body and you want to have your own way since God has no idea what He is talking about? Why in the world would I want to undergo all of that unnecessary pain? In life, we will all experience a measure of pain, why would I want more? Why? Why? Why?

I look at other famous artists and see their face, their neck, and all of their body parts defaced and sketched up. Somebody please answer me, why? I often wonder whether these individuals believe that they will stay young forever. As we age, things start to droop and sag and all of the money in the world will not be able to reverse the natural progression of aging. It will happen. You will look at that 65 year old body with all of those markings and ask yourself, what was I thinking? So think like me, no need for all of that unnecessary pain. Ouch.

Can we turn back the hands of time and have this lil man teach the world that you don’t have to have any tattoos to be the cutest thing EVER!

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and caretaker, and I also work outside of the home. Life has its struggles but I am not complaining. It could always be worse. Many lessons learned on my journey and many more to come--I am sure. God has a sense of humor and I have certainly learned how to laugh at myself. You should too-it is quite therapeutic. After all, some things we cannot change so why not enjoy a good laugh at our own expense. See you soon.
