What is true beauty in a person?
Originally uploaded by Peta-de-Aztlan
Recently a lady friend of mine confided that her friend told her that he was horrified and depressed when he looked in the mirror. He told her that his eyes are small and his face is covered in wrinkles.
I told my friend that I am sure that God doesn't make junk. There is beauty every where.
Wise men know this and have written "Cultivate inner beauty, the gentle, precious kind that God delights in." 1 Peter 3:4 The Message
I find many attractive people in our culture like Jonathan Rhys Myers, Mel Gibson, Russell Crowe, and the classic beauties like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Yet, Audrey wrote this:
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 or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
- Audrey Hepburn, actress
That is why this post has a photo of one of the most beautiful people who has ever lived,in my opinion, Mother Teresa.
