I just want to stare at it.
What's that song....?
"I feel pretty, so pretty..."
Before I get all carried away with myself, or you think that I am some beauty queen, I would like to bring some reality to the scene.
Beauty Queen Land:
It is fun to play "dress up" and bask in all the girliness, but the truth is, I wouldn't trade my life with that of the beauty queen. The wrinkles show a life being lived, the stretch marks are a reminder of how amazing God created my body to give life, and the chin hair...well, we all know what that does!
So, while I sit here and stare at myself in black and white, indulging in just a wee bit of vanity, know this: it is my heart that I hope Jesus will one day stare at and see a most beautiful woman pleasing to Him.
"Your adornment must not be merely external--braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God." 1 Peter 3:3,4
