I don’t know how it happens, I don’t know why it happens, but often times, Eva and I end up wearing similar outfits on a regular basis. It just keeps happening, even without me thinking about it. Then later I realize it or someone points out the fact that we are matching. And this week, I realized “Hey I haven’t worn that grey turtleneck in a while, I think I’ll wear it on Sunday.” Today I went out shopping for a specific red dress for Eva. I saw it weeks ago and thought it would be perfect for her. I bought the dress today thinking “She can wear it tomorrow.” Tomorrow being Sunday. However, at the last second, I decided to get a grey dress. Later on today I realized. Oh no. Tomorrow we will be matching. Again. But I’m not changing my plan. I want to wear my grey turtleneck. And she will wear her new dress.
I hope that Eva decides to wear Christ, as I have. Not in the same fashion… of course it will be different for her. But ultimately, I hope she is a cross-dresser (credit to John Close, remember that John!?), I hope she matches me by “putting on Christ in the same way you put on new clothes” (Galatians 3:27). This is my prayer for her.
