Inspired by Ephesians 2:10 and dedicated to all the wonderful women... HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY


A REALIZATION!!!


I looked at my hands, freshly manicured,
"It looks beautiful," I thought.
And then a realization dawned:
"It was created to extend help and its real beauty
Lies in how many people I have ever helped."

I looked at my feet, freshly pedicured,
"It looks beautiful," I thought.
And then a realization dawned:
"It was created to reach the unreached and its real beauty
Lies in the extra miles I have ever walked to lift the fallen."

I looked at my face, as I stained my lips a shade of pink,
"It looks beautiful," I thought.
And then a realization dawned:
"It was created to utter words of wisdom and to smile and its real beauty
Lies in the enlightened words and smiles that I have ever shared."

"Am I beautiful?" I pondered.
Maybe I have a heart filled with love
But if it has never been able to love
Is it love, at all?

And as I stand before the mirror
All dressed up for a fancy party
Everything fades - the manicured hands, the pedicured feet, the pink-stained lips,
And all that remains, is a blank canvas
Beckoning me to paint it with all the goodness
I am created for.

Physical beauty is fleeting...the beauty of a kind soul is everlasting. You have captured it so well!
