True Beauty

I found this poem in the sidebar at "Making Jesus my Pearl":

Author unknown

The beauty of a woman;
Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries;
Or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman;
must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman;
is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman;
Is reflected in her soul.

It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
And the beauty of a woman;
With passing years - only grows!

How sweet!

This reminded me of another sweet quote I found once:

"For attractive lips,
speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes,
seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure,
share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise,
walk with the knowledge you never walk alone."


And what says the Bible concerning beauty:

Proverb: Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.


Isaiah: "He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him."


Peter: Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.
