Just as every other woman in the world, I have struggled to realize what true beauty means and the reality of inner beauty. The world knocks us down with its unreachable and unfathomable standards that we know we can't live up to- yet we stretch and claw our way to reach it, hoping that one day our hands will grasp it and we will truly be happy. But we won't. We can't. And it's okay. Why? Because we all have our own beauty, we just blind ourselves to it. I believe that we are all made in the image of our Creator- God has uniquely chosen us to bear His image, which already make us beautiful in His eyes. Yesterday afternoon I caught a glimpse of the "inner beauty" that He is creating within me- my little baby, jumping around and growing healthy and strong. Seeing that life inside of me made me excited, nervous, but overall humbled- humbled that I was blessed to have another child, another life created in God's image.
So when it seems like the pressure is too much or you feel you don't live up to what true beauty is, may this video be a reminder of who the most beautiful One is and where true beauty comes from. Yes, we can still enjoy makeup and get all dolled up-we are free to do so- but we must remember the real beauty that's there when the makeup is not. I hope this video brings encouragement and enlightenment as it did to me.
When I'm not spending way too much time getting ready or drooling over the newest beauty product, I'm a stay at home mom of a rambunctious 4 year old boy, a sweet baby girl we lovingly call "sissy", and a wife to my high school sweetheart.
