Who I am is quite enough......

I have never felt beautiful.  Growing up I was teased relentlessly about being skinny, about being short, about being a nerd, you name it.  In middle school I was, like many kids that age, awkward.  Braces, acne, and bad perms.  In high school I was still the skinny one, with skinny legs and skinny arms, who could never get a tan.  If a boyfriend told me I was beautiful, I loved it.  But I never really believed it.

On the eve of my 25th high school reunion, I am so wanting to be beautiful.  I got a pedicure today; I'm getting a haircut tomorrow.  I still haven't decided what to wear.  I want my classmates to be amazed.

But I know there is One who knows I am beautiful.  The One who made me.  The first time I heard this song I cried, because it spoke to my heart.  Let it speak to yours.  If you have ever doubted your beauty, doubt no more.  God made you perfect.  He made me perfect, too.  And we ARE beautiful.

You are beautiful! And so glad you're blogging again! Though I am definitely behind in my blog reading. Facebook sucks up too much of my time!

I've never met you face to face, but I know you are beautiful because your beautiful heart shines through your writing. :)
