Beauty (Five Minute Friday)

  1. Write your words without editing them.
  2. Tell your readers you’re linking up here and invite them to come and share their unedited stories too.
  3. And most importantly, go visit, read, and compliment the person who shared right before you.
Easy peasy. OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes for the prompt:


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so the saying goes.

What am I beholding today?  What do I define as beauty?

Do I look for the outward shell?  Judging a book by it's cover?

Most of the time, I have to admit that I do.

But true beauty lies much deeper than skin deep.

True beauty is never self-seeking.

True beauty radiates throughout personalities and dispositions.

True beauty finds lovely among the ugly.

True beauty turns dust into life.

True beauty is defined in the marrow of one's life, way down deep in the core where integrity lives.

I yearn to be beautiful in this way, the true and only way one should constantly seek to live.

Never seeking popularity or recognition but always reaching down deeper extending and sacrificing and serving.

When beauty and love are blended it looks the compassion that is reflected in your writing. Thank you for visiting Thoughts of Grace, I did go back and add a ps about my Mother,she is beautiful. Please go back and read it to get the 'rest of the story'. thanks Leslie

This is the cry of my heart, too.

Words that are God given are beautiful. John 14:10 . . . the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
This is ever my desire.
