Distored Beauty

It's amazing how we find ourselves buying into the lies of the world. Things aren't always as they seem. The images of beauty that young girls (and we women) compare themselves to is a facade. The pictures have been air-brushed to perfect the look. Reality - we are trying to imitate a look that doesn't exist except in touch-up pictures.

All good and perfect gifts come from the Father. He has made each of us beautiful and in His image. Let's not believe the lies anymore and believe the Father who loves you. Psalm 139:14 tells us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made!

I have long been on a lone crusade to save our girls from this madness. And us. Most of us are so bought in to a culture that promotes sex appeal and it is a facade for a deeper problem in our society. As my mom used to say, "everything shiny isn't gold." This is one of my prayers for our girls to see the light and know the Truth, that He alone is our beauty and our only Hope. Love you, Annette

Great post and certainly a message that needs to be conveyed. I think the whole fantasy image thing affects each of us to some degree, even when we would like to think it doesn't.
