Some days it's not easy to see beauty. It's easier to see that heat and humidity make my skin flush and my hair go crazy. Or that I don't weigh what I want to. Or I just plain don't feel good about myself some days.
And then I remember. When we insult ourselves, we insult God's creation. For we are indeed "fearfully and wonderfully made." This is something that has been taught me by parents, good pastors, wise friends, and it is something of which my husband reminds me often. Ridiculous of me to forget, but forget I do sometimes. I suppose it's good I have the reminders. After all, we are God's creation, the children He loves so much that He sent His son to die for us that we might be saved. And there's no way that's not beautiful.
