Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Lately I feel that my beauty has been left in the rocking chair or maybe in the bath tub but definitely not with me when I am out and about. The rocking chair is where I spend most of my time. The rocking chair to either feed Ti or try to quiet his screaming or the bathtub because that is the only place I get to be by myself. So I did something that is very out of character for me. I had my makeup done.
I am one of those people that doesn't want to take the time or the energy to put on makeup most days. I am a lot like my mom in that area. I think that she wears makeup on Sundays but most days she is all natural. I think that she looks good either way but I probably think she looks more like my mom with no makeup. I guess that will be what my kids say about me also.
Speaking about what kids think about me. Here is a Noah story. I was changing Ti's diaper and Noah was watching. Currently Ti has a huge outie bellie button. Noah preceded to say "hey mom his belly button looks just like yours" Gees Thanks
Anyway back to my makeup story. New makeup = new look = beauty right? Well I don't know about the beauty part but I did enjoy myself. I actually went to the mall by myself and had a very feminine man put makeup on me. I had to contain my laughter every time he would prance to the next counter or put a color on himself so I could see what it would look like. I couldn't help but think what Timmy would be doing if he were standing there with me. Speaking of Timmy he stayed at home with all the boys. He is so brave. I think it was bearable but you could kinda say that he was very excited to see me when I got home and it had nothing to do with all the makeup on my face. Ti was happy I was home too. haha
So I spent about 100.00 to look like I am not wearing any makeup at all. Go Figure!!!
I really don't think it helped my beauty factor that much so I guess I will have to strive for the inward beauty the Bible talks about and leave outward beauty just soso.
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!" (How are our feet looking these days)
1 Peter 3:5
For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands (I am probably not to beautiful in this area haha)
