“Get Ready for Tomorrow: Set Out Your Clothes Tonight” by Joan Y. Edwards

A great way to get ready for tomorrow is to set out your clothes tonight.

Before my late husband, Carl, went to bed, he used to set his clothes out for the next day. Socks in shoes; shirt, pants, belt, hat. He got up at 4:30 every workday. He left our home at 5:45 a.m.

When I was in high school, I wore a uniform to school each day. Sometimes, early in the morning, I discovered that a clean uniform wasn’t in existence.  The skirt and blouse hadn’t been washed and ironed.

When you have a young child, you sometimes do this before going somewhere special, why not do it every day?

My point is, it would have been good if I had laid my clothes out or put them in a special part of the closet ready for service during high school. A few days ago, I started putting my clothes out for the next day. It felt amazing. I hope you’ll try it, if you’re not already doing it.

Having a valet stand would be great, but a chair with the clothes on it and shoes and socks under it would be good. Or a table. Your creativity will find a way perfect for you! I hang mine in the bathroom.

I hang my pants over the hanger. I put the shirt over the hanger. If I need a sweater, I put that on top of the shirt.  You can put the socks in the shoes or use a clothespin to attach underpants, bra, and socks to your shirt, pants, or hanger.

What  can you do to calm yourself from today’s events and be ready and quite  spunky with energy for the next day? Setting my clothes out for the next day helps calm me down and gives me confidence I can make it.

Another way to calm yourself is to forgive yourself and anyone else who aggravated you that day. Ask God to replenish your basket of things you need.  Ask him to give you more of all the resources you used up today. Patience, money, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, courage, etc.

Say the “Lord’s Prayer.”

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Do you plan what you are going to wear the next day the night before? Please leave a comment and  tell me about it.

  1. Ha, ha! This brought back memories. I don’t literally set out clothes these days, but I do think about it. Another Scripture to meditate on before going to bed is Ephesians 4:26:“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath.” Hugs, Carol

    1. Dear Carol,
      Thanks for being a loyal subscriber and for leaving a message on all my blog posts. You are very sweet to do that!

      Glad it made you laugh. That’s true sometimes we don’t actually set the clothes aside that we are going to wear, but we think about it.

      Thanks for the additional scripture that’s good to ponder before going to bed at night!

      Love you,
      Never Give Up

  2. Almost every night I say three prayers. I begin w the Lords Prayer, then Hail Mary and finally the Angel of God (my guardian dear) prayer. I like to think the angels are my busy bees helping me whenever I ask. Luv them!
