The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Elizabeth Kuhler Ros

Still to be neat, still to be dressed,
As you were going to a feast;
Still to be powdered, still perfumed;
Lady it is to be presumed,
Though art’s hid causes are not found,
all is not sweet, all is not sound.

Give me a look, give me a face,
that makes simplicity a grace;
Robes loosely flowing, hair as free;
Such sweet neglect more taketh me,
Than all th’ adulteries of art.
They strike mine eyes, but not my heart.

Ben Jonson

This Morning.

This morning, i woke up happy. I woke up feeling God. I woke up knowing that I am worth something, that I matter. I woke up wrapped in his arms, basking in the love and affection he feels for me.  I woke up in his confidence in me, and in peace that I am living his plan for me. I woke up whole and filled to the brim. I woke up happy.

God, thank you so much for being faithful even when i am not. Thank you for filling me, renewing me, and protecting me from the Enemy and his lies. Thank you for having a plan for me, even if i don’t know it yet. Thank you for restoring me, filling me, using me for your Glory. Abba thank you for never leaving me, for holding me, and for comforting me. Thank you for showing me your presence, your grace and your everlasting mercy. Thank you for waking me up happy :)

With Deepest Affection,

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit…hold onto the good, reject every kind of evil. May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through…The One who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. -1 Thessalonians 5:16-24
