Celebrating the Beauty

I've missed a couple Five Minute Fridays, so I'm glad to get back into it.  Five minutes of pure, unedited writing, courtesy of Gypsy Mama.

This week's topic?  Beauty.


Beauty is...

In the eye of the beholder.
Skin deep.
All around us.

Naturally sought after by every member of the human race.  

But who decides?  There is no formula.  We think we know.  Hollywood and fashion magazines and photography contests and Miss Teen USA.

We don't know.  Beauty is everywhere.  Beauty was Created by a Creator.  Beauty is to be celebrated, because beauty was intended in this world to be celebrated.  The Creator made everything beautiful.

We distort its meaning.  We buy into its lies.  That some things are beautiful.  Some people are beautiful.  And some are ugly.

It's not true.  It comes from a deep dark place that plants doubt into our souls.  

Beauty is real.  It is everywhere.  It is not achieved or made.

It just is.  Beauty is found, discovered. 

In my child's innocent eyes.  In her tiny hand.  In a [warm embrace].


I think I'm out of practice.  Be sure to discover and celebrate beauty wherever you are.

And be sure to check out the other links over at Gypsy Mama.  I'm #141, so there's plenty over there to read and keep you busy.

Have a great weekend.
