Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.

Beauty

Proverbs 31:30
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

Physical beauty all too quickly fades away; all one’s efforts to keep it are doomed to fail.

From The Daily Bread this week.
"Some years ago, a friend of mine told of a conversation he had with a lovely, self-assured teenager.
“You’re very self-confident,” he observed. “Can you tell me why?”
“Yes,” the young woman answered. “It’s because I’m so pretty.”
“Oh, I’m sorry,” he said with extraordinary wisdom.
“Why?” she asked in surprise.
“Because,” he replied, “you may not always be pretty.”

Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me—
All His wonderful passion and purity!
O Thou Spirit divine, all my nature refine,
Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in me.
~ Orsborn

Have a wonderful Sunday.
Hope your day is filled with sunshine.
Happyone :-)

  1. Yup, if outward beauty is our standard, we're all in for a shock! That entry made me think about many other things that I use as my "standard." Fact is that the only standard we can safely use is Jesus and our worth comes from belonging to Him. Hope you have a great day!

    After 70 degree temps yesterday, it's spitting snow this morning. Talk about spring swings!

  2. Your story about beauty is all too true. We need to give greater emphasis to true beauty.
