Week 10: Paz Earrings

It has been a while! I have not forgotten—I have just been a little distracted. Now, on to the next color…brown: “brown symbolizes earthen vessels and humility” (www.preciousstonesof thebible.com). I have been avoiding this color and I don’t know why because I have a lot of gorgeous brown beads. I have been thinking about this Bible blog post for a while and knew that I still had more to post (two left after this one), but this time I knew exactly what beads I was going to use. I prayed about a design and these earrings are the result. I love that brown symbolizes humility. I don’t know about you, but humilityhumbleness… is something that I could use more of. I found this Bible verse on humility:

Proverbs 15:33 “The fear of the Lord is the instruction for wisdom, and before honor comes humility (NASB).”

Honor comes after humility. To me, this means in order to be your best, you need to be humble. God’s Word instructs us to love each other. Ephesians 4:2with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love” (NASB). This is often hard to do, especially if someone rubs you the wrong way. I must make it a priority to be humble even when I don’t feel like it. I have made plenty of mistakes; however, focusing on God’s Word and taking one day at a time helps me. I am thankful that I can depend on His strength and not my own.

Paz is Spanish for “peace” (babynames.com). I thought that this was an appropriate name for these earrings since they symbolize humility. The earrings measure just shy of 3” in total length.

Week 8: Chaya Earrings

This week’s color focus is green: “green symbolizes life (especially new life), growth, fresh, flourishing and prosperity” (www.preciousstonesof thebible.com). Life is the focus this morning.

Proverbs 3:1-4 “My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, 2 for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. 3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. 4 Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and humankind” (TNIV).

God’s Word breathes life into any situation. Read His Word and recall it—it is life-changing. The New Year is right around the corner, let God’s Word be a roadmap this year for a transformed life. I hope that when you look at the color green it will remind you of God’s promises.

 Additional Verses of Inspiration:

Hebrews 10:23 “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful” (TNIV).

2 Corinthians 4:16 “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day” (TNIV).

Chaya Interchangeable Earrings: Peridot & Olivine Swarovski bicone crystals paired with round Russian Serpentine beads.   Chaya is a Jewish name meaning “life” (babynology.com). These earrings are the perfect sparkly reminder of God’s promises!

 

 

 

Week 6: Cecily Earrings

This week’s color focus is yellow: “yellow symbolizes the divine nature of Jesus, glory, faith of the saints, and anointing oil” (www.preciousstonesof thebible.com). Glory is standing out to me this morning. One definition of glory, according to Marriam-Webster (2011), is “worshipful praise, honor, and thanksgiving <giving glory to God>” (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/glory). Glory is mentioned several times in the Bible and it was hard for me to choose one verse. I decided on Psalm 71:8:

 

“Let my mouth be filled with your praise and with your glory all the day” (NKJ).

 

I like that the color yellow symbolizes glory. Think about some things that are yellow that reminds you of God’s glory. For instance, I praise God when I see beautiful yellow sunrises and the sun’s shining yellow rays breaking through a cloudy day. These earrings kind of remind me off a sunrise—in an abstract way. Nevertheless, the soft glow of these yellow earrings will remind me of God’s glory.

 

Cecily Earrings: Honey Opal and Glass – measuring approximately 1 ¾ inches in length and 1 ½ inches in width.
