I wanted to share one of the necklaces with y'all today. I found an amazing little vintage button cover in my button tin the other day and knew instantly that I had to make a necklace with it. It is so unique and eye-catching. I also decided to tie a little bow on the chain with some vintage lavender lace I had in my ribbon stash. I love the combination of the gunmetal chain and the super-girly lacy bow.
I love this beautiful vintage button cover! It reminds me of an onyx stone.
"I DELIGHT greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels." Isaiah 61:10
As I was making this necklace, I was just so struck by how lovely and feminine it was. I was reminded of the scripture above about a bride adorning herself with jewels.
Lately, I sure haven't felt very beautiful. I've been sick and also suffering with bouts of morning sickness. The other night, I was sitting on the couch next to my husband after an exhausting day. I had on an oversized tshirt and baggy sweatpants. My dirty hair was in a bun and I had no makeup on. And he turns to me and says, "You're pretty." And he was dead serious. I couldn't believe it! I sure didn't feel pretty! But he saw beauty in me that I didn't see in myself.
I've been thinking about that little conversation for a few days now. And I know that God wanted to speak to me that night through my husband. God sees me as a bride. He sees me as a beautiful bride, one who adorns herself with jewels. He loves me. He adores me. He delights in me! And one day, I will truly see myself as He sees me! That is my prayer. And I know that when I can really do that, my whole life will change.
