Four years ago I began blogging. I hadn't even realized it until Beth of I'm Heading Towards My Destiny wrote a post celebrating her four year blogoversary. I checked the archives of Heart Choices and realized that my first post was on March 16, 2007.
Some of my early posts were about beauty. I was concerned as I saw young girls trying to look like the models in the magazines. I had seen a short video produced by Dove.
So many unrealistic expectations on women, including me!
Now that I have turned 58, it's much harder to keep up the outward looks. When I look in the mirror, I wonder who that person is sometimes. Inside I feel one way but outside ...I look different.
As a Christian, it's what's inside that is most important. I know that! I don't judge others by their looks. And yet, I find I'm very critical of myself.
My friend Jill of Forever N Ever N Always created an I AM BEAUTIFUL project. She is challenging women from all over to join in. I encourage you to link over and read all about it. I still haven't posted my photo but ... I will.
In the meantime, I am posting the song "You Are More" by Tenth Avenue North for Then Sings My Soul Saturday. I'm linking up with Amy of Signs, Miracles and Wonders.
The words have an important message that goes along with the I AM BEAUTIFUL project.
Blessings and love,
