Beauty for the Battered

"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion- to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning ,the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified."
Isaiah 61:1-3 (see also Luke 4:17-19)

May you find, on this special day of worship corporately with the body of Believers, an exchange for whatever you are facing in the daily living of life. May your ashes become a headdress of beauty that speaks of the glory of the One we serve.

Morgan with a scarf she knitted and finished not too long ago wrapped around her head. It was a cold and rainy day. She is beginning the making of something new. To us, it is beauty, because she made it with her hands. Taught by a woman of godly beauty as well, Mrs. Sharon Moore.
