"I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas? "
Over the past few days I have spent a lot of time chilling out as I do best. I have just finished the dreaded finals and its been great to spend some QT with friends. Starbucks has featured quite a lot...think they will start charging me rent soon. My two wonderful housemates and myself spent all day Monday drinking coffee and chatting about life.
I cannot put a value on the deep friendships that I have with beautiful people like these. I love it when you talk to someone and you can see right down into their soul. I love it when you experience the presence of Jesus by sharing how your day was over dinner. In my opinion I have the best friends anyone could ask for.
Beauty is much more than what we are led to believe. True beauty is that of the soul and it causes us to look deeply and then to look up. True beauty glorifies God and doesn't just flatter the subject. I have been brought to a deeper understanding of true beauty by some of the people that I share life with. I am convinced that we are never more beautiful than when we live in the calling and purpose of God, when we have the courage to walk around in the open place of who we are, when we live from our souls.
I love being a girl...do guys tell each other how beautiful they are? Or do they say it with a macho back pat?? Im hoping for the majority its the back pat!
