This is Sarah.
Sarah is my precious five year old daughter.
The reason for the picture is that I want you to take notice of the blonde highlights in her hair.
You would be surprised how many times I have been asked if I highlight her hair. I am always so surprised by the question! A couple of weeks ago, I had three people ask me in just one week!
I always tell them with a smile, "No, her highlights are all natural. They are God-given highlights."
I also have highlights. My highlights are..ummm...not natural. My highlights are Debbie Barnes-given. Thank you Debbie! My blonde highlights have the important job of.....ahem.... concealing the grays.
Wouldn't it be great to have beautiful natural highlights like Sarah? Her hair shines! Her spirit does too.
Arise, shine; For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you.
And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:1-3
Does that bring joy to your spirit as it does mine?! The GLORY of the Lord is upon us! His light makes us shine in a dark world. HIS GLORY will be seen on YOU!
No matter how dark the world is or how dark things may seem all around you, He says He will arise over you. He will make His glory SHINE on you!
The light that shines on you will attract the lost! The lost will be drawn to His glory in you! Oh, I love this!! My heart rejoices at the thought!
We also have God-given highlights! Hallelujah! My gray has nothing on His glory!
Praise the Lord for our natural highlights!
