WFW: Fading

I'm celebrating my Blogoversary this week--be sure to stop by Monday's post to enter the drawing for the wonderful book Women of Passions: Ordinary Women Serving an Extraordinary God.

Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted this week by eLisa at Extravagant Grace. Be sure to stop by there for more visual inspiration from Scripture.

Got a picture VERY SIMILAR to this in my head to go with this verse that was there too. SO glad I was able to find it! :D

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

May we all be women to be praised!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop by Extravagant Grace for more
