Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Your true beauty comes from the inside, not from your external appearance

makeupBeauty – a word that conjures up a cringe or a sigh!  It is such a complex and expensive topic,  heavily influenced by the media and society in general.  It is portrayed as the be all and end all and your thoughts on it will influence your choices in life.

I want to propose to you that it is not beauty we need to chase after or develop but find the beholder.  It is up to us to use the best mirror in order to develop the best reflection.  This may be God if you are a Christian or it may be Christian values passed on to you by your relatives.

I am sure you are familiar with the verses from Proverbs 31: 30, “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”  Or you may have heard only the first half of the verse.  Either way there are other characteristics such as decisiveness, generosity, kindness and strength.  These will last and develop throughout your whole life, impacting others with your character and helping to build deep relationships.   

It’s worth thinking about.  Do you want to chase after something that is fleeting and deceptive or something that is lifelong and truly beautiful?  Every woman wants to look nice, and there is nothing wrong with that, but remember that it is the heart and the character of a woman that reflects her true beauty. Don’t be fooled by the worlds pressure to conform to external beauty, put the effort into developing your internal beauty, which will leave a lasting legacy.

What are your thoughts on beauty and how does this affect you as a mother?

with love, Meagan
