September 29

I went to dinner with my husband and father-in-law. As we were leaving, I noticed a young woman whose hair was beautifully braided, so I complimented her; she smiled and said "thank you." After my husband passed her, he asked me what I had said to her because she had rolled her eyes. I'm not sure what to think of that reaction other than there may have been something offensive in the statement "your hair looks really pretty!" Many women have such poor self worth that I feel it necessary to try and lift them up by saying something nice to them. It may have been a plot against me from the evil one as a discouragement to engaging in conversation with others. It won't work! I'm not that easily dissuaded! This is a word of caution for you to remember that the devil roams around seeking whom he might devour. He knows the human reaction and will try anything to discourage you from being salt and light to this world, don't let him win!

"You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:13-14
