The many forms of beauty.

Beauty is the untouchable, the unseen.

True beauty is defined by a flickering light within when all else is dim.

Beauty is the art of our magnificient creator. The way He paints the sky for us at sunrise and sunset every single day, the majestic mountains in all their glory towering overhead and the endless ocean shimmering in the sun and moonlight making waves for us to observe and enjoy.

I am an observer of life and vitality. I am so intrigued by our God's ability to create such a beautiful and vast world for us to reside in. His creation has the ability of completely taking my breath away. I can't tell you how many times I've strolled along our beach at sunset in absolute awe and wonder at the splendor of such a glorious body of endless water. I can't begin to tell you how captivated I am by the ocean. I feel closer to God in someway when I'm there.

Beauty is the ability to seek lovliness beneath calamity.

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
-St. Expury

Beauty is constantly surrounding us, yet we so easily neglect and ignore it. There are many forms of beauty.

Inner beauty accentuates a person's character and makes them vibrant and attractive.

How we've redefined beauty in our age. It has become extremely commercialized. Magazines construct a very unrealistic picture of a woman who is smoothed over with computer editing and nipped by plastic surgery. We can't all be size two, thin as a pencil and wear clothes that cost half of our yearly salaries! We're all constantly comparing ourselves with someone; never quite measuring up.

Inner beauty is a concept used to describe the positive aspects of something that is not physically observable. Qualities including kindness, sensitivity, tenderness or compassion, creativity and intelligence have been said to be desirable. Look beneath your skin. A person is only beautiful, when their own beauty, is reflecting on to others.

Seek beauty within and the world will become more beautiful than you ever expected.

"Though we search the world over for the beautiful, we find it within or we find it not."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

You are beautiful.

This line is my favorite in perspective of being a light to the world.

beauty is the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit.

lol, its funny people are constantly being let down trying to meet the "prada standard". But when they strive to reach the lords standard in his eyes we far exceed what the world could ever convey. And the great thing is we fail to the world, but win eternally! WORD

Well you are beautiful too my dear! :)

Ok seriously, you should be an author. Like not one of those novel type authors but like an author who writes inspirational books on life and things like that. Your words have the power to change people's perspective on life! :)
