I’ve been toying around lately about what to do with the blog/website. I was fully prepared to just let it go as I was tired of just posting product information. I mean, how many times can I talk about face wash or eyeshadow? I love the products I sell, but there had to be more. So after some reflection I’ve decided to keep this site but change the direction.
There is beauty everywhere. But maybe sometimes we need to have a reminder about what beauty is, how it can affect us, and who brings that beauty. There is beauty in the common places and the uncommon. That’s what I’d like to share.
It’s December and, for me, this month beauty is always in the waiting. As Christians we anticipate Christ’s birth. As a mid-Westerner, Winter is a waiting period until Spring comes once again. And even as an employee and business owner we see business slow and the year start to wrap up in anticipation of another year of goal setting and achievement. I also have the unique perspective of ending each year with my birthday. I literally get to start a new book of my life at the end of each year, which I love.
Waiting doesn’t have to be dreaded, or feared, or mundane. We can wait with anticipation and excitement, knowing that God will be there with us minute by minute.
Psalm 40 1-4 NIV
1 I waited patiently for the Lord;
He turned to me and heard my cry
2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
3 He set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the Lord.
4 Blessed is the man
who makes the Lord his trust,
who does not look to the proud,
to those who turn aside to false gods.
