Five Minute Friday – Beautiful

People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Beautiful.

Five Minute Friday


This life is so beautiful. Sometimes it overwhelms me with its beauty.

Hearing my sweet girl and her great big belly laugh.

Seeing her smile that lights up every room.

Learning the hard lessons, knowing that the struggles aren’t being wasted, but are growing me and changing me into who He wants me to be. Who He created me to be.

The beauty of a life poured out for Christ. I see it in others and want to be like that. Those whose joy just overflows onto all those around them. Those that love without limits and give without fear and serve without end. Those who are truly living out the life Christ demonstrated for us.

For me, that is the ultimate beauty. And it’s not at all the world’s definition of beauty. It involves dirty hands and dirty faces and floors MADE of dirt. It involves sacrifice and love and sometimes those things aren’t pretty. But they are so beautiful.

I want to live like that.

  1. And I am sure because you ‘want’ to live like that, you will! I loved your point about the dirty faces because we are made of dirt. Never thought of that before!

    Great post 🙂

    Happy Friday,
