Poetry & Prose ~~ "True Beauty"

"True Beauty"

Does not matter the race, color or creed,
Or the current fad, latest trend or fashion design,
True beauty can only be seen in those
Whose heart is genuine, loving and kind.

You can see it in the twinkle in someone’s eyes,
And in a smile that comes from the heart.
You can hear it in softly spoken words,
Sharing the mercy of God, His hope to impart.

You can feel it in the gentle touch of a helping hand,
And hear it in a child’s laughter as they play.
You can experience it in hugs freely given,
And see it in the face of a new born babe.

You can see it in hands that are lifted high in praise,
While tears are streaming down another’s face.
You can hear it in a new song being sung,
As one experiences a special touch of amazing grace.

It can be felt and seen in the eyes of those who
Face life’s storms with strength, courage and peace,
Knowing that their trust and hope is in God alone,
And He is with them in their time of need.

It is when we look beyond the outward appearance,
And look into the heart of those we meet,
That we will experience the depth of God’s love for us,
And share it with others as it was meant to be.

As we learn to see others through the eyes of love,
And look at things from God’s point of view,
We will be filled with His compassion for all,
And see His beauty that is kind, loving and true.

“He has made everything beautiful in its time
and He has put eternity in their hearts……...” 
Ecclesiastes 3: 11
