Snow

We got a little snow where I live.  It is a very little bit, but even that’s a big deal in my neck of the woods.  There isn’t enough to build a snowman or anything, but it’s pretty to look at.

Don’t be like that snow.  Have some substance.  Don’t be a pretty woman, with nothing else to offer besides your outer beauty.  Don’t get me wrong.  There is nothing wrong with taking care of your appearance.  In fact, you should.  Just don’t focus on the shell so much that you neglect to beautify the inside.

Always having your hair, nails, eyebrows, makeup, etc. done doesn’t make you any better than a woman who doesn’t do all that.  Some can’t afford to, whether it’s time or money that stands in the way.  Others(myself included) just don’t care that much.  I’d rather listen to music and read a good book than spend hours trying to look perfect.

If you want to look polished everyday, kudos to you.  But, don’t judge those who prefer a more natural, understated look.  Do what works for you.

More importantly, take some time to become a better person each and every day.  Work on breaking a bad habit.  Volunteer at a local shelter.  Learn a new language or instrument.  Draw or paint, even if you’re not great at it.  It’s fun!  Spend some quality time with your loved ones.  Pray, read your Bible, or meditate.  Remember, we were created to be more than just something pretty to look at.
