Beauty for Ashes

He gave me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that we might be trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified. ~Isaiah 61:3

  6. What a lovely verse! Thanks for sharing it!

    Yes, I am on the fence with the Accutane and I am aware of the headache and depression side effects. I will need to pay close attention!

    Wish we were closer and I'd invite you over for tea (or coffee or beverage of choice). Wouldn't it be nice to just sit down for a nice long visit? I really would like to have a blogger party...

    :)
