Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? I appreciate the time you spent with me throughout the week, when you read Portrait of God’s Woman. Becoming is a gradual, intentional process, especially for those of us intent on becoming a portrait of godly people.
Our weather has progressively become warmer and sunnier throughout this week, culminating with yesterday’s high temperature of 74°. 74°! And it’s not even officially spring yet! Well of course we all know it’s not going to last, so I went for my run outside. As in this post I Was Way Too Fast, I was excited to feel the warmth, hear the birds, see the blue skies and experience the thrill of just being outside. I placed my new Apple AirPods that my babe got for me for Christmas and off I went. There were not as many people outside (you know why), but it was nice to see the smiles and the welcome of the few I passed along the way. As usual on days like these, I began too fast, which leads to huffing and puffing and noodle legs, but still I am not flustered. It’s too beautiful a day to be flustered.
As a woman and like my mom and sisters, we enjoy things of beauty. Nature fascinates me, I am thankful that the God of the Universe chose to share such beauty with me. Clothes, handbags and shoes are a treat! I love sparkle and the shiny things; they all exist to bring me pleasure. But all these beautiful things are only temporary, because true beauty the Bible reminds me is here.
How are you doing? What’s your weather like in your neck of the woods?
