Daily Gratitude Year 4- Day 207: Today, I am grateful for lipstick and other good distractions.
Mama Ina Mae always said that you could throw on a little lipstick and blush and be good to go. I would trade the blush for mascara. To each his own. The point is that if you highlight a few good features...the bad hair day is a little less noticeable.
Again...I think she had a good point. She likely learned it from Grandma. We can't control everything, but we can accentuate the positive. Don't you love this image I found on Pinterest?
It is easy to become overly focused on what is wrong. We forget to maximize the things that are right. Human nature would rather we look down than up. We tend to frown to the ground instead of up to the God of the Universe. The One who keeps us delicately spinning in our little orbit a perfect distance from the sun. The one who has many lives to keep beyond mine, but I...we... get to be a part of His story. How amazing is that? Trials come, but they also go.
