Nature does not require face lifts. No creature ever gets a wrinkled face unless he was born with one. And though their little lives are sometimes filled with stress, they seldom show any signs of it. Who could resist this beautiful Mockingbird babe who was calling to his Mother? And how about this wrinkle- free little face of the squirrel who naps on the birdhouse in our back yard.
Or how about this beautiful wrinkle-free bunny face as he grazes on my Lily leaves?
We humans are obsessed with our looks and how to stay young looking and wrinkle free when no matter what we do to improve our looks, we all end up wrinkled--somewhere! A happy person with a great smile is noticed for their smile and never for the little wrinkle by their eye or mouth! And a weather worn farmer who is wrinkled from hard work in the sun is no less handsome to his wife and children.
WE SHOULD BE MORE CONCERNED WITH A FAITH LIFT!!
Tune into God and have faith in his works and it will show on your face. Ever notice how believers seem to have a glow about them and peace? They do not wear their troubles, their cancers, their lack of material things on their face. We can find something attractive in EVERYONE. Maybe it is their smile, maybe they have beautiful hair or maybe they have that special "light" in their eye that comes from their faith deep within. I have been told several times in my life that I have a light in my eyes. It both embarrassed and blessed me. My Mom had the light in her smiling eyes and my daughters have it in theirs. It's a "good thing" as Martha Stewart would say-ha! I think God puts the light there so that we can shine for him and spread his word. What do you think?
