An Imperfect Truth about Beautiful You

Flaws.
    We all have them, little things about ourselves we wish we could change. How we look, what we weigh, how we walk or the way we talk, and we often find ourselves thinking: “if only I was more like him or her”. Yet no matter how many diet pills we take or creams we smear on we never look quite right.

    Honey, that reflection in your mirror doesn’t show the real you.

    Inner beauty, the beauty of a loving heart, cannot be reflected on glass. It’s reflected in your kind actions and that smile you hand out, it shines from your soul, an ever-burning light. Its not the zits on your face or the size of your waist that makes you who you are, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. You are who you are and that is beautiful just how you are, right now, this very minute.

    And you know what else?

    Jesus loves you. He loves you no matter what size dress you wear or how you do your hair, His love is unconditional, right and fair. He accepts you when the world grows cold, and He loves you just the way you are and the way you are is beautiful.
That, sweetheart, is the truth.
