SOMETHING ABOUT BEAUTIFUL

“It’s a special place where people think you’re beautiful; it’s more powerful when you know that yourself.”  Kris Vallotton
Beautiful might have excellence of form or color; though lack of symetry and uniqueness intrigue.
It has noble and spiritual qualities, inspiring, encouraging and evoking life within.
Handsome is stately or pleasing; masculine and strong.
Lovely is beautiful in a warm and endearing way.

 

My experience and observations have taught me that we have trouble with being noticed as beautiful, handsome or lovely.  We bow our heads, look away, smile timidly and sometimes deny the compliment.
Why?  What has made beauty something that troubles us?  Is it too intimate, reaching to deep places in our souls that would rather remain hidden?
Is it more that it cuts through lies we have been taught, such as appreciating  our own qualities is conceited and vain?
Does it give others influence that challenges our sense of comfort?

 

Do you know you are beautiful?
Will you wear the handsome loveliness that is unique to you with dignity?

 

May the power of beauty shine through and around you.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
