I know I should get back to the scriptures and quote from Matthew, Mark, Luke or John, or something. But sometimes you come across something that you feel is important enough to share with others.
The following made me think of two women in my life that have had a great influence on who I am today. Both were strong in their Catholic faith.
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. - Jacqueline Bisset
How common it is for us to be overly concerned with our looks. The culture encourages it through our families, our friends, the media.
Perhaps it's time for us to take special note of the women we admire for their achivements. We should emulate them, honor them and celebrate their particular beauty - a beauty generally enhanced by dignity, perserverance, courage.
We can cultivate our special interests. They'll contribute to our achievements which will add depth to our soul - the home of true beauty. Mature persons who achknowledge this true beauty are those we wish to attract into our lives. How fickle is the beautiful face! And even more fickle is the one who can see no deeper.
Youth and its beauty are fleeting. Not so the beauty of the developing character; time strengthens it.
I will remember, it's who I am inside that truly counts in the lives of others.
