I took this picture one day after my daughter performed with her violin. The light, the wood floor full of character and the beautiful violin cried out for a photo. I gave in.
The sepia feature on my camera added that antique look. Ancient Beauty today.
I wish I could flip a switch and have that gorgeous sepia feature cover my flaws, foibles and faux pas. My life is full color and every little problem shows up clearly. If only I could either be flawless in full color or antiqued with an airbrush.
The Bible says “Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life.” Proverbs 16:31, NIV.
It seems that in God’s world, if you want to get that ancient beauty there actually is a switch to flip. It doesn’t happen overnight, but it happens. It’s a righteous life. It’s a life of following, chasing and obeying God.
The antiquing of our lives will come as we pursue righteousness. Ancient Beauty, age-old righteousness, timeless wisdom.
Who needs a sepia feature when we have the song of wisdom dancing in our souls through the blessing of righteous living topped off with a crown of gorgeous gray hair?
