so here's my REAL post on beauty. my other one was just a quote. i know it will sound really lame to everyone, mostly the guys, but i don't care. i want to say this. so listen or not. but i think you should read it. after reading aly's post, i remembered once again what real beauty can be. avian beauty.
i met a little girl named ava. she is the most adorable three year old [well they're all to die for] i know. ava has big blue eyes, she is content and happy, and she has crazy curly hair that goes whichever way it wants. cute as a button; well cuter actually. and she is beautiful. i think that her most beautiful trait by far though, is her innocent mind.
you realize that beauty is distorted and photoshopped, but then you have no answer for what real beauty is. well, i think that one definition is beauty from the mind. not in the hands of magazine editors, not in the eyes of tyra banks, and not in the images we see pasted across the media. real beauty is inside a child's mind. kids have the most unique way of thinking. ways that adults can just not comprehend. to a child, colour is unimportant amongst playmates. to a child, glory, fame, and wealth are just words. and to a child, GOD is so big, so strong and so mighty there's nothing our GOD can't do!
why can't adults be that way? why does colour of skin cause separation among GOD's children? why have we become so greedy and self-centered that we are fighting with our neighbors? why is it that we have lost our fear and love for our MAKER? why can't we just be a child again? content, happy, and unaware of the greed, war, and hate? why must we care so much about what the other is doing, causing rivalries and what not? why can't we just look out for one another with compassion? is this not what the word of GOD speaks to us about?
remember beauty is what is inside of you, beauty is an innocent heart.
[matthew 5:44] But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;"
ava sees nothing wrong with the world. it's just her, mommy, daddy, als, photosynthesis the cat, and her FATHER in heaven. the real things, the things that matter most. where's our avian beauty?
