day two: define beauty.

i've thought a lot about beauty in my life.
i don't think i have a full grasp of what it is.
but when i think about it i think of my family and friends.
i think of the world around me.
i think of happiness.
these are the things that make my life beautiful.
when i think about personal beauty i think about being a child of God.
a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father.

i found this poem i wrote in middle school.
i'm almost embarrassed to share it.
but it's appropriate for the situation.
what is beauty?
is it the make-up, the hair?
the inappropriate clothes making some boys stare?
no-this is not it.
to you i will confide...
it's what we see inside.
the hope, the joy, the love.
the testimony, the charity is what makes you rise above.
don't be discouraged on what the world says.
for none of that is true.
real beauty comes from the divine you.

i wish i had an exact date on when i wrote this.
down on the bottom is has "*Ruth".
i think she's been on of my scripture role models for beauty.
she knew who she was and was one of the most beautiful women of all time.
i'm sure of it.

"But the Lord said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature;
for the Lord seeth not as man seeth;
for man looketh on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looketh on the
1 Samuel 16:7

real beauty.
