Sun burst mirrors date back to Louis XIV, he was known as the “Sun King”. In his seventy two year reign, he used to stare into his sunburst mirror each morning to see his face in the center of the sun’s rays. All of this got me to thinking...
As a believer, shouldn't we be concerned with reflecting our sweet Jesus with everything we do, at every turn, every day? Not sure how successful I am at doing that most days.
What about you friend, when you gaze into a mirror, do you see yourself or do you see a life that reflects Jesus?
Consider the decorating angle:
Sunburst mirrors can be used to create a focal point. It's obvious they certainly add sparkle and shine to any room, and I'm all about that! I imagine we would agree that images of the sun are associated with light, so naturally incorporating this item of décor could be inspiring to be inspired to live a life that reflects the son’s rays.
Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD. (NIV)

"But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you. (NIV)
Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. (NIV)
For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. (NIV)
May those who fear you rejoice when they see me, for I have put my hope in your word. (NIV)
While the staff begins meeting today for this week's She Speaks Conference, I thought I'd live you with this treat for yourself.
Scrubs are a wonderful way to gently exfoliate your skin. I LOVE this Citrus Scrub because it smells so fresh and leaves my skin rosy and renewed.
Making your own scrub is easy breezy, and you probably have what you need in your pantry. I make my scrubs in an ordinary mixing bowl, and then I transfer the finished scrub to a decorative decanter or jar.
