God Gave Us The Works

It’s every little girl’s dream–a princess party. We took it one step further: We made it a princess spa party.

 

  • Eight little girls.
  • Giggling.
  • Primping.
  • Getting royal treatment.

 

A hostess took their name, asked what spa services they desired–hair, nails, makeup, or the works. Of course, each little girl asked for the works. While they waited for their names to be called, they enjoyed mini scones with various jams, jellies, and preserves.

 

 

We took them back into the spa room three at a time.

  • Two hair stations.
  • A makeup station.
  • And a manicure station.

 

My station? Hair!

 

“So, what is the occasion?”

 

“We’re going to a princess party. We want to look beautiful.”

 

“Look beautiful?”

 

“Yes.”

 

Look beautiful.

 

I don’t know about you, but I’m 35, and want to look beautiful. Every little girl wants to look beautiful.

 

 

As I combed each girl’s long locks, it occurred to me: These girls don’t need to look beautiful. They are beautiful.

 

Even before I started working on them, they were beautiful.

 

  • No makeup.
  • No manicured nails.
  • No fancy hairdos.

 

I looked each of them in their eyes when they came to my station. “You are beautiful.”

 

Dear one, you too are beautiful. I am beautiful. We are all beautiful in our Father’s eyes. We are His most precious possession (Zechariah 2:8), His masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10). He alone created our inner beings and knit us together in our mothers’ wombs. We are amazingly and miraculously made (Psalm 139: 13-18).

 

We don’t need a lot of makeup, perfectly manicured nails, and fancy hairdos to be beautiful–although those things are nice from time to time–even for little girls.

 

Our beauty comes from within. It comes from Him.

 

God gave us the works!

 

Come alongside…What have you used to make you look beautiful? Do you believe you are beautiful? Who needs to hear that they, too, are beautiful? Will you share this with them today?

  • I’m ready to come to the princess party! (I mean I want to come, but I don’t feel “ready.”) Even though we know better–we forget that Our Lord has already made up for our lackings. We are already His beautiful creations.
    Still, when I get to heaven I want “The Works.” I’m looking forward to that new, perfect body. Until then, I’m sure glad there’s Avon:)

      Come along to the princess party, April! 🙂 You are ready! God says you are!

      Ooh, I too am looking forward to that new body. And in the meantime, as you say, thank God for AVON. 🙂

      Blessings,
      Daphne

  • Great post Daphne! We are indeed the “apple of His eye” and “a pearl of great price” to our Heavenly Father. We are His little princess – daughter of the King! Oh – how I love to ask for “the works”! Thanks for a fun read and profound truth…

    • Daphne says:

      Thanks for stopping by, Deborah! Let’s both ask for the works! Let us believe it and walk in it everyday. You are beautiful, my sister.

      Hugs,
      Daphne

    I love this post. I wish I had learned that lesson much earlier — re makeup and hair etc. That is one rewarding thing about aging (for me at least). I hardly wear any makeup (tons of moisturizer mind you) and let my hair do it’s own thing. Of course it helps that my life partner (and hubby) has always affirmed my beauty whatever my weight or hair might be doing. Self-confidence (esp. a godly self-confidence) is what draws people to you. That’s why children are so lovely. They have that innocence. take care.

    • Daphne says:

      I agree, Jamie.
      For years, I straightened my hair–and boy it took a long time, but in the past two years, I’ve decided to let it do what God wanted it to do–be curly! And boy, curly it is! As I grow in my relationship with Christ, I have a stronger self-confidence–one only God can provide.
      Blessings, my friend.

    Very Good Daphne.

    I know everyone is God’s Precious gift. You have always been the apple of my eyes, and you will always be. God loves you the way you are because for Him and for me, it does not matter what everyone says. You are my sunshine.

    Love you Baby
    DAD
