“He’s not ugly.  You’re just looking with ugly eyes.”

~4 1/2 year old daughter of a friend

May we learn to see with beautiful eyes.

Today and always.

“For God formed their inward parts, knitted them together in their mother’s womb…and they are fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are God’s works.”

~Psalm 139:13-14

  5. Wow: I was on the prayer team at a local church and a man approached me and told me his wife thought she was ugly. I told him, “when you come home today your wife will see her beauty in your eyes”. Jack

    I love the way children “see”. It reminds me of having childlike faith, too. Thank you for sharing, dear friend. May we all “see” with a lens of beauty.
