Last Saturday, I co-hosted a Stella & Dot Trunk Show for my girl aka your stylist, Karen. Along with my co-host, I had a great time prettying up the venue, receiving a few of our good friends and simply spending quality time together. As we and our guests tried on array of chic jewelry, we enjoyed
too many desserts and made an effort to style each other in accessories that complimented our outfits and fit our personal styles best.
Each piece that we put on really seemed to enhance, or adorn, our outfit of the day. Whether the bracelets or earrings were made of ribbon or 14 karat gold, we all had plans on how to pair them and liven up our existing wardrobe. And, whether the necklaces (my personal favorites) and rings showcased semi-precious stones, jewels or sterling silver, they each made a beautiful statement.
After a day of gawking at my preferred selections and calculating the costs, I questioned the statement pieces I’d chosen for my wish list. Were these timeless pieces? Would these be the optimal additions to my collection?
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Listen, my son, to your Father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They will be garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck. Proverbs 1:7-9
My child, do not lose sight of wisdom and discernment. Hang on to them, for they will refresh your soul. They are like jewels on a necklace. Proverbs 3:21-22 (NLT)
There is gold and a multitude of rubies, but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel. Proverbs 20:15 (NKJV)
A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is a wise man’s rebuke to a listening [obedient] ear. Proverbs 25:11
Wisdom. Knowledge. Discernment. A timely word. Discipline. Obedience. These are precious, invaluable and necessary embellishments of life. These make the statement of character and a life under His Lordship. And, these will be getting more of my attention today. Jesus be a statement necklace.
