He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the
hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. ~Ecclesiastes 3:11
Todays topic is: Beauty in 5 Minutes … no editing, no second guessing.
God has made everything beautiful in its time. That is EVERY thing. You … Me … the trash can … the withered flower …
The beauty of life …
I’ve never felt ugly … though I don’t like pictures of me. I see what I precieve as flaws. I see my heaviness and age.
I see the reflection of my mother and my grandmother … now those are not flaws … but… I want to be me … I want to see the me God made.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14.
I am blessed, I say often. My childhood, oddly enough, did not leave me feeling ugly. Dirty, unworthy, neglected and even abused; but not ugly. Though I must say I’ve never felt beautiful either. Odd, I never think of it that way!
I find beauty outside of myself. God shows me beauty everywhere. I often think of the age old question:
“Who can not believe in a loving creator when they behold the beauty before their eyes?”
Seriously. There is a story in every picture … beauty to be found in the day to day life, as described by so many by this prompt today.
UPDATE: I went to a meeting after posting this and on my heart was the video posted at the top; in my Spirit I knew it needed to be added! Thanks for forgiving me this indulgence, but there is at least one heart that needs to listen … You are beautiful! ❤
(photos added after the five!) and…
Forgive me an aside here, I believe this sums up our responsiblity concerning beauty … after all we are God’s Children!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest
fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness,that frightens us most.
We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make
manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Maryanne Williamson
