This week feels like a beauty focused week. I have never once received that many random beauty presents within a week and my birthday this year has long passed. There is no particular occasion for these gifts actually. I am hardly a beauty person, where skincare and beauty products are concerned, I am basic and minimal. If I have a choice, I will probably not even do anything but I do understand that this temple of God should be taken care of as well. I am wondering if God is speaking to me and the verse Esther 2:12 came to mind. Not sure what it practically means in my life, but I think I should just enjoy the beauty treats that God has showered on me!
“Before a young woman’s turn came to go in to King Xerxes, she had to complete twelve months of beauty treatments prescribed for the women, six months with oil of myrrh and six with perfumes and cosmetics.” (Esther 2:12 NIV)
Just blessed and loved by the friends who gave me these and that God is reminding me to take care of myself. =)
