Please don't take my turquoise robe away from me! It is thread bare and has served me well; but I do not want to part with it! What is your comfort clothing article? Most of us have at least one item we wear repeatedly. We have a closet full of clothes; but usually wear favorites over and over.
I have seen television programs with conflict in the home, following the wife tossing out or donating old articles of clothing. The husband sulks like a boy who just lost his puppy! He needs that old flannel shirt! His wife was embarrassed to see him in such disgusting attire; but he had just broken it in!
My old turquoise robe was bought at a thrift store about ten years ago. In winter months wearing my robe kept me warm and "comfy." Ladies, you know the feeling; it's like curling up with a quilt, protected from the chill, enjoying that all over feeling of "ahhhh!"
A friend gave me a beautiful robe a year or two back; and I really like it. It is pleasant to the eye, easy to care for and comfortable. I almost threw out the old robe I said almost; I decided to keep it for a comfort emergency! If I get sick, I will put on my robe, and feel a warm hug!
God understands our emotional needs of comfort, and wraps us up in His word. "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope (Romans 15:4 KJV)." Ahhh!
