After(life) a Fashion

Award-winning clothing designer Geoffrey Beene died yesterday at the age of 77. Widely considered one of the fashion industry's most innovative thinkers — no less than Jackie Kennedy wore his clothes — Beene focused on designing high-fashion, elegant clothing meant to be worn rather than merely seen on the runway or in a magazine. There have been innovations in how retail stores are designed, and fashion companies have struggled to reinvent themselves. What's next for workplace style? Business casual, more formal, something else? Who makes the most high-style, elegant business clothing?

    Abercrombie, Gap, and some of the specialty stores are trying to make inroads into workplace clothing, although I doubt they'll be successful at it. Personally, I don't think you can go wrong with Armani and Calvin Klein, and everyone knows that Ralph Lauren is sort of an office casual king, with the clean attire.

    Well, one second after lift off from earth, where is he? The Bible explains. Absent from the body, present with the Lord----or not. Destiny is still the most important thing to consider since humans are immortal.

    Who can know his heart. God gave him gifts. My hope is that he gave himself back to His Creator and Savior "in time" so he can be living out a wonderfilled eternal life--with God the Father, because of what the Son, Jesus, has done. Jesus paid for the sins of the world, and many don't know. He can have mine! My wish is to live for Him now, and let Him live through me so others will see He loves THEM, AND IS THE MOST INTERESTING PERSON WHO EVER WALKED ON EARTH...GOD IN A BOD...JESUS, SON OF MAN, SON OF now BY HIS SPIRIT FOR ALL WHO 'INVITE' HIM TO THE TEMPLE OF THEMSELVES.
    I DID. Not disappointed....far from it. Hope and peace and faith and love are 'here' with me.
    God gives confidence....and I smile at the future.
