True Beauty. . .

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. . .
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. . .

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. . .


And for beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.~Sam Levinson
In a society so seemingly obsessed with physical beauty, it is my prayer that we could follow this simple recipe for "true beauty". I am seeing the true beauty in each of you dear friends as you love your homes and families and one another. God bless each and every one of you!

Vicki, what a beautiful thought. I agree, our world is so obsessed with physical beauty and does not see the true inner beauty that touches the heart of God.
