Finding a Masterpiece Among the Sweaters

For by grace you have been saved through faith.
And this is not your own doing, it is a gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
For we are his masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand,
that we should walk in them. ~Ephesians 2: 8-10

Sometimes Christ reveals Himself in His people at the check-out counter in Forever 21, among the sweaters at Banana Republic, along the sidewalks of Charleston.

Because Christmas shopping is about more than just buying stuff!

Linking with Jumping Tandem, Scripture and Snapshot, Finding the Beauty.

    What a fun perspective on shopping – walking among women who are His masterpieces. And the dogs, too – they brought a smile. thanks.

    • Maureen, I saw those dogs through the window as I passed by the hair salon and went back to see if I really did see what I thought I saw. They were the owners dogs who learned to sit like her clients and wait on the sofa. Hilarious!

    • Thanks Shanda, appreciate your coming by and offering the link. I love those dogs too. Was walking along the sidewalk with my husband at dusk carrying a Starbucks and I happened to see them seated there through the window. I couldn’t resist!
