Ann Voskamp recently wrote a blog post about the true meaning of beauty and love. Here are a few quotes I want to pass along to you: If you listen long enough to all the loud voices about who you should be, you grow deaf to the beauty of who you are.
Listen to the Voice who assures: “I am making your good decisions work for good — and I am working your bad decisions into the best loving plan for your ultimate good.”
Listen to His Voice: God is turning everything around to turn you into the beauty He knows you are.
For a beautiful countenance — count blessings. For beautiful lips — only speak words that make souls stronger. To carry yourself with poise — carry each other’s burden. For the most beautiful shape — simply live with one hand receiving all as gift, and other hand giving away the gifts. You becoming the shape of a gift.
These flowers are from the home of my friend Jona. I took them while J and I were visiting her and Mark last weekend.
This is the view from Mark and Jona’s deck; a stunning look at the Missouri River.
Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful!
