Real Beauity

This is me after a long, cold and miserable photo shoot. Society's beauty costs my friends! ... I think it took three cups of tea to warm me back up again.

I can conclude that almost every woman, everywhere, wants and yearns to be beautiful. And every day you’ll hear voices telling you how. “Buy these clothes! Try this diet! New creams guaranteed to make you look younger! Three easy steps to look like this season’s top actress!” 
And when you reach your goal of becoming beautiful, the voices say, you’ll be happy. Popular. Successful. Loved by everyone. But is this really what physical beauty delivers?

God delights in beauty, and he wants us to cultivate the most fulfilling and genuine kind.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you"-1 Peter 1:3–4

"I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God" - 1 Timothy 2:9–10, 

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight." - 1 Peter 3:3-4
