Her face was still a bit tender to the touch. She smiled as she thought of how much easier the procedure had been than she thought it would be, and the results overrode the frustration of the constant upkeep to defy gravity in this aging process. 😊
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United. Today’s blog is thoughtfully transparent as revelation meets reality and encourages us on in the journey of aging…gracefully.
She really was amazed at how much easier the PRP facial had been. Her only knowledge of it had been thru one of her estheticians who had posted pictures which explained why it was also called a vampire facial 😊 Those pictures from two years ago had been etched in her mind and it just didn’t interest her…until recently. The fine lines and full-blown wrinkles overrode her aversion and when one of her best forever friends extended the invitation, she accepted.
She was immediately comforted by Traci, the esthetician, and a nurse. She explained every single step she took to complete the process. During one of the steps, Traci discovered some white spots under her left eye. She worked diligently in removing what she identified as cholesterol deposits, tiny little white rocks with roots! Then the microdermabrasion process happened where lots and lots of dead skin was removed from her face and chest area before injecting her own stem cells back into her skin.
As she rewound the whole process, several thoughts like sparks began to fire in her heart, igniting her mind. Spiritual beauty is far more important than physical beauty, and yet, there are some similarities: just as the nurse/esthetician worked diligently to remove all the impurities from her face and chest, we are to work diligently with Christ in the process of removing any impurities from our lives. And just as she had allowed Traci to cut away those white cholesterol deposits, she had to give Him permission to cut away old habits, attitudes, actions and hurts, i.e., the dead stuff, so new growth can be stimulated.
Soul care, though more important, is like skin care and Jesus is our Soul-tician!
Friend, do you realize that upon permission, our Heavenly Father will work gently, relentlessly, and gracefully in our souls, bringing to light, like a mirror, gently and quietly, those impurities in us that need to be cleansed, or removed, kind of like a soul facial. 😊 And like certain types of beauty procedures, the process can be a bit painful, but the result is becoming more like our Maker and liking who He has made us to be.
Oh, to seek soul care as much as skin care.
