Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised. Proverbs 31:30In our culture it is harder and harder to turn our back on the mirrors and scales that get so much attention in our bathrooms. Everywhere we turn we are bombarded with the ideas we're too skinny, too fat, too many pimples, too much sugar, too much white bread...you fill in the blank. And it's easy to catch our reflection in every window and mirror and I won't even start with the 'selfie' craze that our smart phones enable us to take. Ruby and several other senior saints I know and admire, are beautiful women because they decided a long time ago to love God and their neighbor and serve others. They looked away from fleeting beauty and gazed upon their Savior. Even though they have achieved senior saint status, they continue to eat right, exercise and spend their energies helping others. I am in awe of this woman who decided this past year to 'enjoy God.' I could ramble on about what it means to enjoy God but you'd probably get a better answer from her..she's got a 40 year head start on me. Maybe I will ask her and write another post on her answer. In the mean time shall we all turn our backs on the mirrors that show oncoming wrinkles, white hair and flabby arms and look to our Lord who is worthy of all our praise. Happy May Day!!
