My #1 Beauty Secret

I was reading some blogs and stumbled across one that shared some beauty secrets...and while we all have certain products we love and recommend from time to time, I have a revolutionary secret...I know this works, because I have seen it in the life of a VERY BEAUTIFUL woman...I found it in a Bible Study Booklet called Successful Living by John and Janice Walsh, Volume 1... but really, it is timeless from the Word...So, here is that secret....

For they shall be...chains about thy neck. Proverbs 1:9
These authors go on to share that there are two basic human desires...the desire to be honored and the desire to be beautiful. The authors say that most men want to be honored and most women want to be beautiful, and I would agree with that. They go on to share that in 1 Peter 3:4 a woman's true beauty is found in the inner person she is...They say, "If she is rebellious, her resentful and obnoxious spirit will eventually come to the surface and be displayed for all to see. If, on the other hand, she is as peace with those in authority, she is storing up a wealth of inner beauty. This too will come to the surface and in time make her an even more attractive person." They are saying that a woman becomes more beautiful as she submits to the various authorities we have in our lives.

So back to that beautiful woman...I am sure that most people would not even notice her, but she is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN I KNOW...she loves God, her husband, her children, friends...and continually points others to God and His Word. The inner beauty of who she is are the outer ornaments that grace what she looks like. Her face is peaceful, loving, tender, kind, joyful, and more...She is gracious, careful with her words, understanding and compassionate, yet stands firmly on the truth. She trusts and submits and has a proper attitude towards authority...and she IS beautiful...
Just think, this could save us a FORTUNE in beauty creams!
