Hats... They do so many things! A hat to cover a bad hair day, a hat to protect from the sun or rain, a hat to beautify, a hat to just be there (as in hey! I'm wearing a hat right up here!)... Sometimes a hat really makes all the difference, you have the perfect everything but this one spice missing and there! the hat fixes it!
I remember my very sweet friend once got me a hat for my birthday and the week after I wore it to church and I got so many smiles that day! Even at the end of the service, a lady came to me and told me that she thought I had an air of elegance (thank you hat for getting me a compliment I could never get otherwise!)
And I think we are called to be that cherry on the top of another cake... A hat for a friend... To cover, to protect, to beautify, to defend, to just be there... To add an air of elegance to their day... to be that small spice that makes all the difference for them....
I know I have been blessed with a handful of wonderful beautiful hats that I would really not exchange for anything in the world and I pray God gives me the grace to be to them that hat, that cherry that they are to me and a bit more!
