FOR ALL THE DAUGHTERS: THE TRUTH ABOUT BEAUTY

CAPTIVATING 2

Life has a way of wearing us down and making it hard to see the beauty. We lose focus and our vision is clouded by the mundane, the painful, and the false.

Beauty, true beauty, is captivating. It makes your heart stop in an effort to freeze time.

Beauty is a moment. It is laughter and love mingled together. It is something so hard to hold yet prolific in nature.

The truth of beauty is that it is everywhere. It is not reserved for magazine shelves and art museums. It can be found in the triumphs of living through. It is in the air on a long run or in the exhilaration and burst of muscle and sinew during the sprint. It is in the quiet “thank you” of a student leaving the classroom. It is dancing in the sun after exchanged vows of forever.It is in the small and simple and in the grand mountain views.

The truth of beauty is that it is in you.

I am a woman in my mid thirties figuring out how to balance an intense need for perfection with the reality of my own imperfections. The answer I am finding is grace.....and plenty of it.
As a mother of three, a teacher, a church planter, and a runner, I have many opportunities to practice giving myself and others the grace I need to survive.
