Isnt it fun being a girl? Hip fashions and funky jewelry
are the bomb. Shopping is awesome.
I love to find bargains on dangly earrings and chunky jewelry.
Forget studs, I need substance!
Different looks, from casual to chic, make life sizzle. Girl,
let me tell you--pedicures are to die for! Baby pink polish and
crystal toe rings rock my world. Uh huh. Lip gloss ranks right
up there with my cell and mascara is way cool. My hairdresser,
let me tell you, she totally rocks too. Who else can rescue me
from being so. . .yesterday?
Wait a minute. All this talk sounds shallow. Dont get the
wrong idea! Im no dummy. Being pretty on the outside isnt
where its at. In order to really be a hit, I've got to be
in love with God and His Word. Hugging God in my heart is where
my beauty starts. Without that solid foundation of love in my
heart, Id just be a bag of dirt. Dont listen to the
media. The girl who trusts the Lord is the one who really has
it going on.
Girlfriend, before putting on your duds in the AM, put on the
great I AM. His love will transform you into a bling bling
for all the world to see. Trust methis is the best beauty
tip youll ever get, and all for free! You better soak in
the love of God more than you do a bubble bath. Its value
blows everything else out the window, for sure. Without Jesus,
youre just an empty mask like earrings with no dangle. Me?
No Thanks. Give me the beauty that never fades. I'll put my Bible
before my blow-dryer any day.
Do not let your adornment be merely outwardarranging
the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparelrather
let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible
beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in
the sight of God. (1 Peter 3:3-4 NKJ)
