She’s Like the Wind

Don’t you just love this photograph?  The dress, the lighting, her expression captures a deep, thoughtful repose. Her eyes are focused in a gaze that is transfixed on someone. Jesus? Her hair is ginger and her lips red, soft as a rose. The wind is in her golden lit locks. She is happy, she is loved, she is beautiful.  She is fully alive in the abundant grace of God.  She has no fear of the future. She is loved and provided for and she is protected. In fact, overly so. God is her sufficiency, He is more than enough. In the movie Mr. Skeffington, played by Claude Raines, he delivers the line that, “A woman is never truly beautiful until she been loved. ”  I believe that is true.  But I might add, she is beautiful when loved by Jesus and by a husband who loves Jesus, she is standing in the wind of the Holy Spirit. It is a portrait, a masterpiece in the hallways of heaven’s art gallery. If she’s like the wind, or even you or I, my prayer is for it to be the wind of the Holy Spirit. Rebecca Jones
