Simply Sunday-Beauty Tips

Happy Sunday Friends! I love sharing fashion and beauty tips but if you’ve been following my blog for very long you also know, I love to share tips on inner beauty.

My sister and I were talking about an upcoming speaking engagement I have and I told her I wanted to share inner beauty tips. She reminded me of this poem. Traci had found it on one of our Mom’s files on her computer after she passed away. It was simply titled, Beauty Tips.

by Audrey Hepburn

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 his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anybody.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, 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 is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
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 only grows with passing years.
 

It didn’t surprise Traci and I that these were the beauty tips that our Mom would feel are important. Mom’s beauty came from her personal relationship with Jesus Christ and she loved to share about Him with everyone she knew.

{This was Mom, with my daughter and I just a few months before she passed away.

She has left a lasting legacy.}

Who has influenced you in your walk with Christ? Are you leading others to Him?

Have a Blessed Sunday!

      Thanks for sharing. My step-daughter loves Audrey Hepburn, so I shared this with her. A co-worker of mine was responsible for leading me to Christ. I always knew about Him, but it was her mentoring that ultimately helped me to realize His love for me. I’ll always be thankful for her!
