Hooray for Hollywood?

Tonight is the Academy Awards, the biggest night in Hollywood; the one night that actors, actresses, producers, directors, composers, and countless other cinema professionals wait for all year. Tonight, fashions will be critiqued, careers will be made, hearts will be disappointed; trophies will be given, speeches will be read, red carpet will be walked...

After reading Courtney's post, My Reflections of the Academy Awards from her blog, Women Living Well, I was inspired to buy my own red carpet as a reminder that:

~ As I walk to my red carpet, I am thankful to have a husband and children to lovingly serve.
~ As I stand on my red carpet (with or without hair done or makeup on) I am beautiful in the eyes of my husband, the only earthly man's opinion I care about, and in the eyes of my Lord who created me in HIS image.
~ As I wash dishes at my red carpet, I am grateful for clean, running water that I daily take for granted.
~ As prepare countless meals and snacks at my red carpet, I am reminded that God provides all our needs.
~ As I clean my red carpet, I am reminded how God sent his Son, Jesus, to cleanse me of all my sins.

I may never walk the red carpet of Hollywood, wear a designer gown or give an acceptance speech; but, each day I walk up to my red carpet with confidence because of who I am in Christ, satisfaction in the contentment that is found in joyfully serving my family and thanksgiving for the many blessings God has so graciously given to me. It's more than can ever be found in a small, golden statue.

I love the way Courtney says it,
"There is no greater honor than the red carpet walk I do every morning in my kitchen. Join me, as you step up to your kitchen sink – in welcoming a joy that the world cannot understand."

Just hopped over from (in)courage and I really like what you said!  Our reward may not be instant, and it sure isn't happening amongst great lighting and perfect is SO much better than a trophy.  sigh.  Thanks for the reminder!

Hi Allie. Welcome to BBM! Thanks. It really spoke to me too when I read Courtney's post. I think we all need the reminder from time to time. :)

I love that concept of our daily lives being an opportunity to strut our stuff on the red carpet.  Great post!
