Perfection is Annoying

When the wind messed up my hairstyle right before a speaking gig, I whined to my ten-year-old granddaughter how I'd spent 30 minutes on my hair and make-up.

"Don't worry, Grandma," she said, "People who look perfect all the time are so annoying."

I agree.

This is one reason I try to be authentic with you, sharing my faults as well as my fun side. If I try to come across as perfect, I'll only succed in annoying you.

And that's not my intent.

My goal is to help you laugh, show you more of God's grace than you saw yesterday, and share my heart with you. And maybe that means messing my hair up, so you won't feel so alone when your do is undone!

Have you ever been around someone who always looks perfect? How did that make you feel?
