Does it have to be itsy bitsy?

The itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka-dot bikini…. we all know the lyrics. But do we know what these lyrics actually meant for bathing suits lining the seashore? With the turn of the fashion world and the women’s rights movement, the bikini became a tool used for female empowerment. But, fashion designer Jessica Rey reveals the shocking research on the male brain that shows otherwise.

Just A Glimpse

Artists strive to make a statement with their paintings. Each brush stroke, each color mixed on the palette is an intentional effort to create something beautiful…. something meaningful.

Every moment of our lives we have the opportunity to create something beautiful too. Every person we talk to, every smile we give, every time we answer the phone, we make a statement.

We often care so much about what other people think about us… our friends, our family, our co-workers and classmates. But we very rarely think about the glimpses a stranger catches of us. We very rarely care about the way we treat people we don’t know.

The person standing behind you in line, the women sitting across the room at Starbucks, the old lady walking behind you through the door… all of these people are strangers who just catch a glimpse of who we are.

This video shows 500 years of women in artwork, each one unique and each image shown only for a moment. As I watch this beautiful video of women through history, I can’t help but think about the statement my life makes. Surely, these women were known and loved by people at that time. But today I catch just a glimpse.

Years from now, when people look at your life, do you want them to see just another pretty face frozen in time, or a life that brings glory and honor to your King. Our life can say something about who we are, but better yet, our life can say something about who He is when we find our identity in Him.

Philippians 2:15 says we can shine like stars in the sky by being children of God. When we reflect who He is, it’s hard for anyone not to notice.

After all, you can see a star shining bright… even when you catch just a glimpse.woman
