Earlier this month, I shared a link on this blog to a video titled “Real Beauty Sketches.” If you haven’t watched it yet, please do before watching this next clip, which is along the same lines, titled, “Mothers & Daughters – You Are Beautiful.”
I’d venture to say that many mothers are so busy with all that being a mom entails that they don’t spend much time “beautifying” themselves. As such, they probably don’t feel beautiful very often.
But they are. Because they love their children. And love always makes us beautiful. My mom is one of the most beautiful women on the planet. She never wears makeup but she’s always smiling. She never styles her hair but always wears it in one long braid. And she’s beautiful.
Tell your mom she’s beautiful today.
And tell yourself that too.
Because love makes us beautiful.
And you are loved.
“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are” (1 John 3:1).
