Sunday Sunshine: The Widow

(A greek widow I met in Greece)

I have decided to begin a special blog tradition for Sunday's, AKA "Sunday sunshine", to feature my spiritual thoughts for the week and bring a little sunshine into your week (hopefully) as well.
Proverbs 31:25 "Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come." 
So often we as women get caught up in the "perfect" blouse at the department store or the never ending stream of new beauty products, all promising never-ending satisfaction and happiness. (I know this because I am one of those women.)  Then reality hits. You buy the shirt, the dress, the lipstick, the whatever and feel this magical euphoric sensation lasting about 5 minutes and its gone. The things we buy are not what bring us happiness, but the "strength and honor" of which we carry in ourselves through the Savior, Jesus Christ.

I met this Greek widow in a small alley way in Mykonos, Greece. She is virtually left with nothing, if very little at the end of her long life. She now can see what is important in her life, what truly mattered. Not the clothes, or the perfect flow of her hair; but her heart. Let's all try to be old widows this week and remember what truly matters!
May your Sunday be full of sunshine:)
