And so I'll allow myself to take pure delight in the process of becoming "beautiful", not in the eyes of this carnal world, but in the eyes of Eternity. During this last week the Beth Moore Bible study on Esther spoke of this. She said, "In man's realm, time DIMINISHES beauty, but in God's realm where we will spend forever, time PERFECTS beauty." There's a lie that tells us that we're as good as we look and as valuable as we are desirable....this is not truth. You can learn in first-hand from her.
I'm off to pack for my weekend ahead and possilby clean my house, (why I would do that when my boys are staying behind, I am unsure). I think I would rather invest my time into preparing yummy things for them to eat, the way to man's heart, is, afterall, through his tastebuds!! I'm heading to the beach with some dear friends and my Paisley girl. I'm looking forward to spending time with these women who have learned and are learning what TRUE beauty looks like.
BE BEAUTIFUL INSIDE.
