Four Years Beautiful

Today, I told someone that she was beautiful. 

She stopped and had a confused look about her for a few seconds before she asked what i meant by telling her that she is beautiful.  I personally believe that each and every girl, woman, daughter, wife should be told that she is beautiful at liest once a day, through the way men act and talk.  Sometimes this comes in a simple act of kindness (taking up their tray in the cafeteria, a reassuring smile, an awkward hug) and sometimes through spoken words. 

Why?  Because each and every one of them was made in the image of a holy and perfect God.  Because so many times, men treat them like trash or worse.  Because they need to be reminded of the beauty that they hold inside them before they believe the lie that the world tells them.  Because each and every one of them are beautiful. 

I told her she was beautiful because she was Gods and nothing could take that away.  She smiled before she told me that the last time someone told her she was beautiful was in eighth grade.  She is now a Freshman in college.  The last time someone told her she was beautiful was four years ago.

That breaks my heart.  I believe that breaks God’s heart too. 

So, this is my challenge to all the guys, boys and men:  Make an effort to remind each and every girl and woman that they are beautiful, through your actions and through your words.  Maybe you will remind them of how beautiful they really are before the world makes them believe otherwise. 

God Bless and PEACE
