In His Eyes

Yesterday, the Oprah Show discussed beauty and the perceptions of it around the world. Some cultures prize pale, white skin while others pay for dark, tanned skins. Some societies esteem thin body frames so women starve themselves, yet other cultures honor large robust bodies so women gorge themselves. What a paradox beauty is!

Truly, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Thankfully, God finds us beautiful just for being. Nothing more—just being. He takes us, warts and all. You are beautiful. I am beautiful, too.

Thank you, God, that your eyes behold me.
