Shoddy Reflection of Deity



I know.
The one-hundred-twenty-dollar jeans and the
Name-brand, form-fitting shirt and the
Sparkly, hangy-down things from the cute little crocheted hat...
All that stuff
draws attention to itself.
The Birkin bag and shiny, high-heeled crocs
Serve as tempting
distractions,
Drawing the eyes and the
Mind away from what the bling disguises,
What the make-up hides,
What the glitter and highlights transform into an
Icon:
The image we all strive to attain.

But try to see past all that.
Because underneath the grimy
Filter of fashion and
Caked-on cosmetics lies a
Person, just like you and me, with
Feelings, and family, and
Purpose.

Beauty is only skin-deep. It
fades.
But once the pesky prettiness is
Washed away, what
Remains is
precious.

  1. Preach! This is beautiful, Melody. And so, so true. "Whatever is true, whatever is noble..." :)
