Meaning of Beauty

Beauty inside and out

     Kimberly Sanderson of Acworth Beach, GA states, “Makeup is a tool meant to make an ugly thing beautiful”.  I do not agree with Kimberly, makeup can hide the bad, enhance the good, but there is no such thing as an ugly person.  God created man, and He said “This is Good!”  He doesn’t make mistakes.  We were created in His image, there is beauty in everyone.  It is up to the beholder to find the beauty that often will shine from within, but it often is not apparent.

     A size 18 woman thought she wasn’t beautiful enough for her husband so she contacted a professional photographer for a photo shoot for the purpose of spicing up their love life.  After the photographer photo shopped out all of the stretch marks, (from the birth of her children), her wrinkles, (from aging), and other defects she presented the photos to her husband.  To her amazement her husband’s reaction was not what she expected.  He was extremely upset and deeply hurt realizing he had not commented often enough to his wife of her beauty to the point that she felt the need to erase the age from her body that made her beauty so special to him, the age of history, their history, the story of her beauty tells of their life together.

     What about you?  Do you think you are beautiful?  Do you feel beautiful?  Are you content with your beauty?  When was the last time someone told you that you are beautiful?  When was the last time you told someone they are beautiful?  Think about it.  I think you are beautiful.

     When was the last time you heard the words, “You are beautiful”?  How did it make you feel?  I have been thinking about this for many days now.  I met someone, a stranger, who recently told me I was beautiful.  My reaction, I was a little embarrassed.  I struggled with how to react, I tried to seem not concerned about it, I did not want to offend the stranger, but it truly bothered me.

     What about you?  How did you react the last time you heard those words, ‘YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL”.  Was it a small child who said that to you, your reaction might have been different from a stranger’s comment, was it your spouse or significant other, or a neighbor, or a long time friend?  Think about it, maybe comment below, maybe you will discover that you are beautiful because I think you are.
