Pretty No Moore

I learned of a man who met a very pretty and sexy teenager. He asked her, "You look very self-confident. Can you tell me why?" The girl replied, "It's because I look so beautiful with a sexy figure." The man said, "Oh I'm very sorry to hear that."  Surprised, the teenager asked, "Why are you sorry?" The man responded: "It's because you will not always be beautiful with a sexy figure!"

Declining physical attractiveness as one ages is a landscape no one can escape.  In a world that worships physical appeal, it can be easy for women (and men too) to feel insecure. If physical attractiveness  is what "owns" you, you're in for psychological, emotional, and spiritual disaster, sooner or later.

Believe it or not, it's possible to have attractiveness that will not fade away despite declining physical looks or appeal as you age. True and lasting beauty stems from who you are. Even if set aside through old age, sickness, or seclusion, you can still be beautiful.

It's never too late to dig deep and find out how.

"Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised" (Proverbs 31:30).
