Uncommon Beauty. . .

Not everything uncommon is beautiful, but that which is common will always cease to be considered beautiful. . .A person living in the mountains will long for vistas of rolling lowlands, peaceful slow flowing rivers and grassy emerald plains. . .Surrounded by rocky bluffs and saguaro cacti, beauty is seen in stately oak trees and crimson hued maples. . .


That which is sinful or worldly is never rare, but only all too ubiquitous. . .In a sea of painted faces. . . extravagantly processed hair. . .and immodest attire, the wholesomeness of refreshing cleanness found in a woman modestly attired, with her God given face undiminished. . . is as an island to one long at sea. . .her natural beauty unaltered by man made artifice. . . is striking, refreshing, and restorative to the soul. . .


For women to run to the example presented by the monthly magazine fashion models, is to join a stampede to destroy her own unique beauty, by striving to replace it by the cloning of the appearance,  of every other member of the herd, thereby achieving the very commonness they think to avoid. . .


The only winners of this mass quest for unique beauty being publishers of magazines and the manufacturers of cosmetics. . .The clear losers are the women themselves, who live their lives on a never ending quest for that same rare beauty which they unrealizingly have had bestowed upon them from birth. . .


Thank you Lord for modest and holy women, who allow their God given beauty to shine. . .
