As women, we ache to believe that
real beauty can be found in the midst of imperfection.
We are crying out for permission to lower our standards.
~Myquillyn Smith, The Nesting Place, p47~
I see beauty all around me.
I see imperfection all around me.
I am looking to my Lord to help me see
not only imperfection in myself,
but beauty in that imperfection.
I am seeking to find joy not only in the work God has given me
but joy in the body He has given me to use for that work.
I am seeking to glorify Him through the imperfections,
rather than to negatively focus on them.
Lord, I believe.
Help Thou my unbelief.
