True Beauty

Popular culture makes a big deal out of what it considers physical beauty.  Every day we are bombarded with messages that we are not thin enough, or too thin.  Our skin is too dark or too light. Our hair is too curly, or too straight.  Our eyes are the wrong color.  We are flooded with advertising for products guaranteed to “correct our flaws” and make us “beautiful.”  And those of us who do not measure up are bullied, shamed, and sometimes even physically attacked.  This is especially heartbreaking when it happens to children.

But I have news for you.  True beauty comes from within.  No one is ever more beautiful than when the light of God shines through them.

On this New Years Day let’s take a break from thinking about resolutions and how we want to change ourselves.   Let’s start 2020 thinking about true beauty.

    1. You are welcome! I’ve reached a point in my life where I can look back at old photos and see that those who told me I was “ugly” and “fat” were wrong. I just wish we could find a way to reach the young ones and help them realize their true beauty.

    1. Thank you! Seemed to be the perfect time for this when so many people seem focused on changing themselves in the new year.
