What's in a name?

The dear sweet director of women's ministries at my church was giving a talk about inner beauty... How we spend so much time, effort, and money on our outer appearance, whereas the Lord is concerned with our inner beauty. About half way through the talk, she paused and said "But ladies - it never hurts to paint the barn!!!"

So let this initial post be the time that I will say this: The Lord created every woman beautiful!!!! And as my grandmother (who is a true natural beauty) still says "Pretty is as pretty does". There is no true outer beauty without inner beauty.

That being said.... it is darn fun to dress it up now and then!!! Give that barn a fresh coat of red paint, so to speak! The same grandmother mentioned above also puts on lipstick every morning before she leaves her bedroom to have coffee and read the paper with her husband of almost 69 years. As she explains it to me - he is the one she wants to impress, so why not?

Well I have learned well from my mother and my grandmother - and if you know me, you know the gym is about the only place I go without lipstick (and even then, sometimes I just can't help myself!!) Now - I have two small children, and am forever on a beauty budget - does this sound familiar??

Let me be your compass in the land of budget beauty. Let me encourage you to put on your lipstick and color those pesky grays (which we will blame on the kiddos of course!) The mood lifting power is immeasurable!!
