Some of my favorite quotes about "beauty". :-)
"Taking joy in living is a woman's best cosmetic."
~Rosalind Russell

"Of all the things you wear,
your expression is the most important."
~Janet Lane

"There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness."
~Lady Blessington

Time Tested Beauty Tips
(often misattributed to Audrey Hepburn -
she did like this poem, but did not write it)

"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries,
or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
the passion that she shows,
and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!"
~Sam Levenson

Hi Mrs. H!

Thank you so much for playing along! The quotes were fantastic - I especially like the one from Rosalind Russell. :o) They're such good reminders of the joy of being a woman in the Lord!

Praying that you have a very blessed weekend! (Your profile pic is ADORABLE!)

P.S. I accidentally deleted the Mr. Linky for today's FF post, so I'm asking everyone to please oblige me and re-link to their posts. :o) Thanks a bunch, mama!

In His Abundance,
