“Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman without discretion.” ~ Proverbs 11:22

Apparently, brassy (the word prompt of the day) means:

  • tastelessly showy 
  • loud in appearance or manner
  • lacking discretion

It takes practice to have discretion, and I don’t think it’s natural in this culture.

I am learning it, little by little…

A few years ago, I went to a ladies gathering with friends from church. I spotted my friend wearing a red gingham jumper.  I recognized this jumper, because I had recently donated it to the local thrift shop.  This thrift shop was also a favorite of hers.

I spoke without thinking: “Oh! That looks like the dress I just gave away!  Did you get it at The Corner Thrift Shop?”

She was quietly gracious.

Discretion, self-control, and a quiet and gentle spirit. These are adornments I want to wear every day.
