Where Beauty Comes From

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.  Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth."

-1 Peter 3:3-4

While I may braid my hair and be a loud talker, I am being reminded of the true beauty that comes through gentleness, peaceful living, and working on my inner self.  Sometimes I have to put on some mild music, do something creative, and center my heart.  But when I do this I begin to believe - that true beauty is from within and streams from the heart.
