What is beauty? Surely it is not just an outward appearance that follows what society thinks is beautiful. Could beauty be so transient? Beauty is innate. It is self evident when seen with the eyes of God. Appearances change, but beauty remains. Beauty does not need to be announced or bragged about. If someone needs to do that, they don't realize their innate beauty. A rose is beautiful, not only because it is a pretty flower when it blooms, but because it proclaims its God essence always, even when it is dying. Regardless of your looks, your age, your physical or mental condition, you are beautiful, because God shines through you.
