Mirror on the Wall

I got an article that deals with this issue:

The title is How Females Look in the Mirror.

Age 8: Looks at herself and sees herself as Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty.

Age 15: Looks at herself and sees herself as Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty/Cheerleader or sees fat/ugly. (Mom I can't go to school looking like this!)

Age 20: Looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too/short/too tall, too straight/too curly" but decides she's going anyway.

Age 30: Looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" but decides she doesn't have time to fix it, so she goes anyway.

Age 40: Looks at herself and sees" too fat/too thin, too short/ too tall too straight/ too curly" but says: " At least I'm clean and goes anyway.

Age 50: Looks at herself and sees "I am" and goes wherever she wants to.

Age 60: Looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers the world.

Age 70: Looks at herself and sees wisdom, laughter and ability goes out and enjoys life.

Age 80: Doesn't bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with the world.

That's the way to live life.

But why wait until 80 to develop this attitude?

Beauty is in the character not on the skin.

A wise guy says: Beauty always comes from within- within jars, tubes and compacts. That's not what I mean.

A French proverb says: BEAUTY WITHOUT VIRTUE IS A FLOWER WITHOUT PERFUME.

True beauty is that which reflects the beauty of Her Maker.

A godly life and a great positive disposition.

Who can resist such charm?

You don't need those low waist-hip hugging-panty revealing jeans to be beautiful.

Show the love of Christ and exhibit His character by being a woman of virtue and I can assure you you're BEAUTIFUL anytime all the time.

So relax. Be happy and be beautiful.
