Okay, I think this is something everyone has thought about. "Why do I look like this???" Yes, I have LOTS of NEVER ENDING acne, bad hair days, clothes that aren't as cute as my friends and stuff like that. Are you with me? But that is not what counts. So what does count?

It's not about what clumsy things you do, but about the way you treat people. 

It's not about your crooked smile, but about how many smiles you can help others make.

It's not about your clothes, but being modest.

It's not about the way you look, but over all about just Honoring God in all you do.

 10 [b]A wife of noble character who can find?
   She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
   and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
   all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
   and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
   bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
   she provides food for her family
   and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
   out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
   her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
   and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
   and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
   and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
   for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
   she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
   where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
   and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
   she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
   and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
   and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
   her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
   but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
   but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
   and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

If you read Proverbs 31 does it say anything about how beautiful she was? No! it said all the Godly things she did and that is what counts. (no, I am not married so it does not totally count for us girls, but you get the point ;)

Are you truly beautiful?

  2. I love that song! Francesca Battistelli's voice is ah-mazing! :) I LOVE your new header, btw!! ;)

  3. I love that song. It is one of my most favorite songs. I know exactly where you are coming from with lots of never ending acne, bad hair days, and not as cute clothes. It is something that most girls face at some time in their lives. Francesca Battistelli's song helps me see that I am beautiful just the way I am.


  4. This is a gorgeous post! It's really and truly inspiring!

    by the way, if you'd like me to post about how I deal with acne and bad hair days over at Rouge in Red, I will. I just don't want to if it isn't wanted for anyone. :) But trust me, acne is seriously cruel to me.

  5. I love that song! Great post!

  6. Fortunately I've never had to deal with too much acne, but I'm pretty sure I am the QUEEN of bad hair and not-so-cute clothes. That's why I took up sewing --so I can make clothes that I like, modestly, and for really cheap. :)

    Also, just as a note, Rachel from Teddy's Cause has yet to contact me back. :P
