11 I adorned you with jewelry: I put bracelets on your arms and a necklace around your neck, 12 and I put a ring on your nose, earrings on your ears and a beautiful crown on your head. 13 So you were adorned with gold and silver; your clothes were of fine linen and costly fabric and embroidered cloth. Your food was fine flour, honey and olive oil. You became very beautiful and rose to be a queen.
As you have instructed me to do; I seek the answers to my deepest problems in your word. And so Lord, we need to talk about this.
I have the jewelry, bracelets and necklace. I have earrings and although I don't have a crown; I do have various fabulous hair accessories that I'm willing to take in trade.
Gold and silver? Well, gold and silver-colored. Does that count? My clothes are mostly fine cotton and I'm not really into embroidery being that I'm less than 120 years old. I do enjoy all variety of flour and honey type pastries and olive oil is definately the best.
I appreciate your opinion that I am beautiful and I choose to assume that others will soon realize that I am a queen.
But here's the issue Lord. I did not get the promised RING on my nose. There was a problem in translation and you gave me ZIT on my nose.
Lord, I try not to complain. But really. Zits and hot flashes happening to one person is a bit much, even if she is a queen.
I'm willing to forgo the ring, but couldya do something about this zit?
