My brother and his wife are interior designers and they do a pretty good job. The other day I was visiting at their home and I was amazed with what they have done with the place. Now you have to understand that theirs is not a palatial home nor do they live in a mansion. Theirs is just a small simple dwelling place but they have done such a good job with it that once you get in, you don’t want to come out.
Ever small space is well utilized and the colors on the walls and the celling are just breath taking. You enter and you feel at home. Every other day when I visit, I find something new. The thing I love about what they do I that they are able to use simple everyday things to create a beautiful home. Nothing necessarily expensive, but everything simply beautiful.
As I was thinking about them today I remembered Sarah and Abraham
11 As he was approaching the border of Egypt, Abram said to his wife, Sarai, “Look, you are a very beautiful woman. 12 When the Egyptians see you, they will say, ‘This is his wife. Let’s kill him; then we can have her!’ 13 So please tell them you are my sister. Then they will spare my life and treat me well because of their interest in you.” 14 And sure enough, when Abram arrived in Egypt, everyone spoke of Sarai’s beauty. 15 When the palace officials saw her, they sang her praises to Pharaoh, their king, and Sarai was taken into his palace.
Sarah Abraham’s wife was a “knockout” The bible specifically mentions that she was a beautiful woman and the Egyptians confirm that because they are taken by her beauty to the extent of talking about her and mentioning her to Pharaoh. Now that must be BEAUTIFUL!
When we get to heaven there are some bible characters that I would want to meet and hang out with, but with Sarah, I just want to see.
Now beautiful things don’t just remain beautiful, they have to be looked after well to maintain their beauty. I am sure for Sarah to look as beautiful as she was; she did a pretty good job of looking after herself. Remember this is a woman in her late 60s and she is still turning heads!
Are you taking good care of yourself? Do you look healthy strong and beautiful?
I see people who get married and in their minds they have reached so they no longer take good care of themselves to maintain the beauty. You become careless in the way you look and it seems like you always look your worst when you are with your spouse.
You want to look good when you are going out to a function but what about when you are just hanging out with your spouse? When you take a walk with your spouse, is it others that turn their heads to look at you because you look good or is it your spouse who turns their head to look at others?
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that internal beauty does not matter, it does matter a lot and so does the physical beauty, and here I am not talking about the skinny kind of “beauty” that we see in ads and on the catwalk.
Hey! It’s time to throw out the old tattered stockings and t shirts and get some exercise going to reduce that bulging belly! Create the atmosphere for your spouse to fall in love with you every time they see you. It does not have to be something expensive, just be creative with what the Lord has given you!
Dress up and look good just for your spouse as you hang out in our home!
