Beauty fades, Kindness Never Goes Out of Style

1 Real Woman, 18 photoshopped versions based on cultural preferences. Lesson learned: You’re Beautiful. Period.

We’re all one-of-a-kind, never to be repeated or replaced beings. Don’t be bothered by “standards” which are always changing and never satisfied.

If we want to work on/filter anything, let it be our Kindness and Love. That never goes out of style and does a world of good. Literally.

Watch: Colorblind man sees Purple for the First Time #HeavenGlimpse

It’s so easy to take vision and the beauty of color for granted. Watch the video when someone who is colorblind sees purple for the first time. Get a glimpse of how beautiful the world around us actually is. His response to grass broke my blind heart.  Continue reading “Watch: Colorblind man sees Purple for the First Time #HeavenGlimpse”

Cinderella: A note on Humility, Entitlement and Kindness

Cinderella had it rough. Grief from losing her mom, a step-mother who treated her like a slave, and a steady stream of insults from snobbish step-sisters. Hard knocks life, with a “happily ever after.”

But what if she knew how her story would end? Continue reading “Cinderella: A note on Humility, Entitlement and Kindness”

Makes no sense…Strawberry Tops

I’ve eaten strawberries my whole life and always thought the green tops were just that: green tops.

But upon closer inspection I found pattern and symmetry: triangular, pointed leaves in Star-formation, interspersed with oval strips.  Continue reading “Makes no sense…Strawberry Tops”

Rainbows are actually Full Circles!

Apparently, when seen from above, rainbows are actually CIRCLES! Considering rainbows are noted as symbolizing the promise of God never to wipe out the earth with water again, it seems appropriate that it be a circle, like a ring: never-ending and unbroken, like promises are supposed to be… Continue reading “Rainbows are actually Full Circles!”

The Stars are always Shining, Even if you Don’t See Them

Today is a grey, rainy day. My home is a bit chilly and everyone is sleepy. In our spirits, we can  experience “grey days”–and that may be putting it mildly. We can feel dark clouds of gloom, hopes dashed, spirits crushed, lonely in a deep pit. But like the grey day, somewhere in the sky there is the sun… Continue reading “The Stars are always Shining, Even if you Don’t See Them”

Makes no sense…Butterfly Wings

Apparently all that ‘dust’ on your fingers after touching a butterfly wing is actually individual scales, like fish scales. And each scale has a tip, imagine the base of a feather. What?! Continue reading “Makes no sense…Butterfly Wings”

God’s Glass Elevator

Remember the glass elevator from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? In the end when Charlie wins the grandprize, Willy Wonka pushes the button and the elevator bursts through the factory roof, zooming through the air. What an unexpected, wild and wonderful freedom explosion! We may have ideas about how God is and how He might communicate with us, but, like that crazy glass elevator, I believe God, and our relationship with Him, can be much cooler than we could ever imagine… Continue reading “God’s Glass Elevator”

Keep Moving Forward–Grace and Choices

If you’ve ever been on a bike you know that slowing down too much can cause you to fall. You have to keep moving in order to keep steady. I think life can be like this–we keep moving forward, or we start to fall… Continue reading “Keep Moving Forward–Grace and Choices”
