Thoughtful Thursday



 

“A desire to be beautiful is not unwomanly.  A woman who is not beautiful cannot properly fill her place.  But, mark you, true beauty is not of the face, but of the soul.  There is a beauty so deep and lasting that it will shine out of the homeliest face and make it pretty.  This is the beauty to be first sought and admired.  It is a quality of the mind and heart and is manifested in word and deed.  A happy heart, a smiling face, loving words and deeds, and a desire to be of service, will make any girl beautiful.”

~ From Beautiful Girlhood, revised by Karen Andreola

~ Charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.  Proverbs 31:30 ~
