Of A Lady’s Handbag

If you were having coffee with me; I would tell you how as a guy, I am always; let’s call it “in awe of the things women carry in their handbags….

It’s a whole dimension in itself in there; reminds me of Felix The Cat’s bag….

Felix the cat magic back with universe inside

If I was to ever re-invent a handbag, I would probably include a built in light, similar to the one you find on a fridge that goes on when you open it…. (I have seen ladies struggling to find something they are sure they put in their handbag and I would almost make the suggestion to them; that they should carry a torch, for such moments…. but on account of me rather liking my head firmly attached to my neck and breathing and stuff I just silently watch and make no comment…..)

Vanity light inside handbag
A vanity light inside a handbag how about that….

If you were having coffee with me; I would tell you that my mom’s handbag holds something you can see without ever opening it….

She carries a sermon in her handbag…….


How does one carry a sermon in handbag you ask? Well, good question and I am glad you asked it, because today is your lucky Sunday….

One side of her handbag is completely scarlet and

Red & whiteA message of His infinite forgiveness:

Isaiah 1:18Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”They say He works in mysterious ways and if something as simple as handbag can carry a message what about His wonderful creation……..


Isaiah 53:5 “….By his stripes we are healed…

They say He works in mysterious ways and if something as simple as handbag can carry a message what about His wonderful creation……..

If you were having coffee with me I would ask you if you saw the lunar eclipse a few nights ago and if you stayed up to watch the meteor shower…..

I watched the partial lunar eclipse but on this side of the hemisphere the Perseid Meteor Shower was mostly disapponting maybe because I was somewhat misled by a hoax message that claimed this would be the brightest meteor shower in 96 years (Thanks to Google I knew the message was claim was fake) but still I expected something like a New year’s fire works display….

And all I saw was only one shooting star…

The Perseid Meteor Shower happens every year peaking around July/August …who knew …maybe next year I will have a friend with telescope and an observation deck and we can count the stars….

A starry night is the salt of the universe revealing mysteries the sun hides

Have an awesome week

  2. Well B, I think you just found your life’s purpose: designing ladies’ handbags 😀

    Also, I totally missed the meteor shower. I didn’t even realize it was happening! Oh well, there’s always next year.


  3. Hi again! As you already know, I love the format of your blog. And just so you know, I still do. The whole if you were having coffee with me just sets up a delightful tone. And there may come a day that I write an “if we were to share a carrot” blog post. Maybe it reminds me of “if you give a mouse a cookie” or some other past fondness.
    Anyway, in regards to this blog post !!! lol the purse vanity light! Hope you are running to the patent office with that one because it is just brilliant! I have a few go nowhere inventions myself, but I am slightly envious that I can’t honestly add that one to my list!
    Love it!
    Have a great week!
    And tell your mom we said she is Brilliant as well! In fact, she might be able to run to the patent office with that one as well!
