Pajama Day…..

We had Pajama Day? Yes, pajamas were the choice of attire for the Broadway Sonshine PreSchool.  Just so you will continue reading let it be known that I chose not to participate. 

Actually it was a great idea. The children in the 4s were studying the letter P and the two just seemed to go together.

When working in the public schools, I was never too fond of those “Jean Days”, “Pajama Days”, or the “Wonderful Wind suit Wednesday”. As a principal, we had those days because it meant so much to the teachers. I can still hear it today, “Mr. Fitz, we love those days because you don’t have to decide what to wear.”

Polo, Hilfiger, Lucky Brand, Guess, Ecko, Nike, Young Jeezy, Uggs, and the list can go on and on. I never wanted to be a walking advertisement for name brands. But for some it is imperative that the clothes have the correct logo.

When doing the jail ministry, I noticed that the inmates would want their greens to be neat and pleated. They “ironed” the pants by folding them and putting them under the mattress while they slept. Clothing made the man.

The Bible tells us what we are to clothe ourselves everyday.  

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:12-14

I’m not sure what I will wear for Sonshine’s Rodeo Day – maybe some Wrangler’s, a George Strait shirt, Lucchese Boots, and a Resistol Hat. Until then, I plan to dress according to Colossians 3.

If we daily don the apparel of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, and then secure them with the belt of love we would truly be dressed to the nines.
