Personally, I think glitz and glamour can be every day attractions like what is found in "A Friendly Shade." Green grass, rose bushes covered in bright red blooms, and day lilies bursting with brilliant yellow color. I, for one, find pleasure in the first hint of blooms on a tomato or squash vine. These are God's gifts of glitz. Even my simple upscale country home with southern style columns and comfortable porches, although not decorated in a style most people would classify as glitz and glamour, gives me as much pleasure as a sparkling diamond. A comfortable lifestyle filled with woodsy surroundings, the chance of wildlife sightings, mother nature supplied by God, and wonderful, friendly neighbors can make up a very glamorous lifestyle for the majority of folks.
As far as the individual goes, nothing is more glamorous or contagious than a smile and a heartfelt laugh. I believe that our hope in God and our love for Him provides a truly glamorous smile for it can be seen from the eyes down to the mouth. It can be seen in speech and actions. Therefore, I would have to say that what is glitz and glamour to one person may not be what holds the key to being truly rich. The question I have to ask is, "When you take away the showiness, what is found?"
My joy comes in the morning because of Jesus who died for me. It is in Jesus I find my glitz and glamour. He is the One who gives me joy.
