Beauty is as Beauty Does ~ BE Beautiful

I was having a conversation with a lady at church yesterday about what it means to be beautiful.

There have been people who come through Harvest that wonder (sometimes very skeptically) why the women at Harvest are so beautiful? Another question is why do the women look younger than what they are?

My answer to that is "beauty is as beauty does." A person's beauty depends a lot on how she acts and what she puts in. Eventually, what she puts in will start to show on the outside. 

If she puts in crud from the TV/movies etc. that will start to show in her countenance, or in her actions. 

I believe the women at Harvest are showing the glory of God and it is coming out in their looks. They glow because they have spent time with Jesus! 

Psalms 50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shined.

When God is in you, you shine! After all, through Jesus, we are the light of the world. When we spend time with Him it shows... on the outside.

My Etsy Shop Update and what are the faves?

Update on my Etsy shop:

Things are going wonderfully!  I am honored to be making special pieces for people.  I've gotten to make bridesmaid jewelry, custom jewelry for brides, and stamped disk jewelry for all kinds of gifts, etc.  

The other day, I had the privilege of making a custom necklace for a lady who had cancer.  Her friend stuck by her through it all and she wanted a special piece made for her dear friend.  (I'll tell more about that later.)

When people favorite my jewelry on Etsy, I can see what they clicked on.

HOPE Jewelry

HOPE necklace ($25)
@ Everything Beautiful 


To hope, doesn't mean to "wish." 

With God, it's not a lottery system. It's a faith system. Faith that He will do what He said (it's all in the Bible).

Hope (Old Testament): to wait, be patient

Hope (New Testament): to anticipate, usually with pleasure, expectation or confidence: faith, hope

I expect God to do what He said He would do. After all, He doesn't lie!

I anticipate, with pleasure, for Him to work on my behalf! Why? Because He loves me.

Hallelujah! Have a beautiful, hope-filled day!


Words matter... they sink deep...

What I say
What I think
Makes a difference in my life.

I had a dream last night. I was sitting in a restaurant with an old friend at a table with some people who were strangers.

Two of the people in that group were swearing like crazy. One man. One woman.

As my friend and I were trying to catch up after not seeing each other for years, we couldn't help but hear the constant swearing.

I finally couldn't take it anymore and told the people that my friend and I are leaving because every word of what they were saying was going into my spirit and piercing it.

To my surprise and to theirs, the two people looked at each other and admitted that they didn't like it either! They admitted that they were each swearing because the other one swears.

Then, very graciously, they decided to leave the table so I wouldn't have to.

All of this to say, I woke up and had an even stronger awareness that the words I say and THINK (the meditation of my heart) are very important and impact my spirit. My words and thoughts need to be acceptable to my spirit and the Holy Spirit.

Do you want blessing? You do have a choice in the matter.

Encouragement for today:
BE blessed!

BE blessed. Choose it!

Do you want blessing?  You do have a choice in the matter.

“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! 20 You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life. And if you love and obey the Lord, you will live long in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” 

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (NLT)


Who's Opinion Really Counts?

There are theories ALL over the place.  Opinions fly around...mama's opinion...the expert's opinion... the teacher's opinion....the neighbor's opinion...  You get the idea!

Everyone has an opinion but only ONE opinion counts.  That's God's opinion!  Find out what the Word says and stick to it.  

It doesn't matter what so and so's opinion is!  It really doesn't!  It ONLY matters what God's opinion is. He doesn't lie.  His Word is truth. It is the only opinion that counts.
