You’re Beautiful

Love the art in yourself, not yourself in the art. 
 
     ~ K. Stanislavsky
 
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
    The woman to be admired and praised
    is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
 
     ~ Psalm 31:30
 
There is a woman in my church who is just Park Avenue classy from head to toe, hair always done, make-up just so.  There is no evidence of alteration of any kind, man made that is.  She always knows what to say, always has a kind word, the innocence of a child, the wisdom of the ages.
 
She does not believe in being anyone else but who she is.  For her this means, no hair color, no extensions, no botox, no collagen, no liposuction…you get the idea.  
 
She is candid, gifted, supportive and a prayer warrior.  She does not sit in judgement of those less fortunate, shes dives in and helps in any way she can.  Her children have been my students, and they mirror her classy ways and Godly devotion.  The art in this lady is at the hand of God.
She is human, and makes mistakes just like the rest of us, and when I read this scripture, she is the first one who sprang to mind for truly she lives in the grace and the fear of God.  She has stood between myself and temptation to be unkind many a time for decades by her candid, loving direction.
She is just one of the mirrors in my spiritual powder room, and I am grateful for her.  Now for the shock.
Someone feels the same way about you.
Today, stand in the light of God and say thank you when you get that compliment. You’re beautiful.
Because of Him,
Linda
