Is MakeUp Deceptive?

Is there something deceptive about makeup? I believe it is a topic worth exploring. My interest in this topic awakened after receiving a makeup kit which a family member ordered for me online.  When the item arrived the name on the kit gave me an uneasy feeling because I understood the meaning of the name.  Dismissing the feeling I went ahead and used the makeup I had anxiously waited for. But the Lord brought it to my remembrance again and this time I could not ignore.

The Beauty Industry in the US, which includes hair care and skincare, is a 445 billion market (Forbes, May 2017). The US has the largest cosmetic market in the world. It was expected in 2016 to exceed 62 billion in revenue and is expected to maintain positive growth through 2018, (Market Research.com 2016)

Time Of Refreshing

Psalms 12:6-7
The words of the Lordare pure words,
Like silver tried in a furnace of earth,
Purified seven times.
You shall keep them, O Lord,
You shall preserve them from this generation forever.

Thankful Sunday

Psalms 18:31-33
For who is God, except the Lord?  And who is a rock, except our God. It is God who arms me with strength, And makes my way perfect He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places.
I can’t let a day go by without praising His name I can’t forget from whence I came I can’t let a day go by without counting the costs I can’t let a day go by without praising His name -Song by the O'Neal Twins
This song is my heart anthem.  I am thankful to Jesus for bringing me through many challenges this week.
When I thought I was going to fall under the pressure and stress, you caused me to rise up like hinds feet. You prepared a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.

We Are Called To Stop At The Well

I enjoy taking long walks. It has become my personal method of decompressing from the stress of daily activities.  During my walks, I would often walk past this older gentleman and wave to him as I go by. He would nod his head at me as a gesture of acknowledgment.  My friend often joined me on my walks, but this particular day my friend was not available.  In my normal routine of waving to this older gentleman and keeping to my pace, he joined me on4 my walk.  I was surprised when this happened because we didn’t know each other.  Our conversation began with him asking me what are we doing out here in this heat?  I laughed and responded, “We are trying to stay healthy”. He did most of the talking and I mainly listened commenting occasionally. There were no formal introductions or exchange of names at the time. The old gentleman is from South Carolina and is 83 years old. He told me stories from his childhood and reminisce of the good old days, as he put it. Then things turned personal…

Stay Under His Roof

One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple Psalms 27:4, nkjv
