Beauty / by Natalie Wagner

External beauty is temporary. Even the most breathtaking flowers wilt in due time.

Radiant beauty shines from within.

Like memories that emerge as sun streaming through a window on a cloudy day, they always seem to grey.

To bask in their warmth lasts but a short moment. 

Soon the sun will fall behind the thick layers of sky, and all will be forgotten. 

That is until a gust of wind carries away the condensation of consideration. 

External beauty triggers visual pleasures.

Internal beauty plants a seed containing truths and wisdom. 

Psalm 139:13-14, β€œFor thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
