Ok, so I admit, I'm having a hard time 'feeling' beautiful these days. I'm tired of wearing black and looking at the pooch on my lower tummy. Sure, I'm exercising and dieting. I'm even continuing to apply my anti-wrinkle cream at night to offset these wrinkles that seem to have popped up after my delivery! Then I was reminded of the words Peter wrote about women in I Peter 3:3-5, "Your beauty should not come from outward adornment such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful."
I don't think Peter was suggesting women neglect their outer looks (goodness knows, no one would've ever gotten married back in those days!). But Peter says God holds a woman's spirit to be worth more than her outward appearance. The women in Peter's day obviously knew this because he said that's what the women in that time focused on: their inner beauty.
When I get to heaven, I want Jesus to say to me, "Stand there and let me see how much you look like me."
