Awaken to Your Beauty

“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny follower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”
~ Therese of Lisieux

Beloved, be who you are today, from the top of your head to the soles of your feet, inside and out. Please do not allow others to convince you that any form of social blindness is good—color blindness, sexuality blindness, body blindness, or whatever. Instead, be conscious of who you are, because the God who formed you is fully conscious of who you are. You are seen. Live seen and awaken to your beauty.

As for those who want to bury their minds in some form of social blindness, pray for them that one day they too will awaken to beauty.

These are the flowers my wife and son gave me for my birthday. I love flowers. They tell many stories of beauty and mystery.
