Putting on a Pretty Face

       When we look beautiful or handsome from the outside but not from the inside, something is off.  Our beauty should come from within, and reflect out, not vice versa.  This quote from Elisabeth Kubler-Ross sums this up beautifully:      
 
        “People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”


Cayce Zavaglia Creates Portraits Using Wool in a Style of Renegade Embroidery        There is an artist in St. Louis who is doing phenomenal work right now – she’s making portraits out of people with embroidery thread.  This is incredibly detailed portraits that she creates by sewing different threads together to create just the right coloration to make the portrait appear life-like.  The end result is amazingly breath-taking because of the sheer resemblance to the subject. 
But on the other side of the photos we see a whole different story…but perhaps more akin to reality.

     The real question is which of these two above pictures do people see you as?  Do people see you as a beauty, but then your actions portray you as something less then beautiful?  Or do your beautiful actions shine through the exterior, and you are beautiful in your beautiful deeds?  Something to think about on your Sunday afternoon.
God bless!
