Every girl loves it when her man says that he loves her for her, for who she is. Not for what she is, but who. But it never feels quite as good as it does when he tells her that she is beautiful or pretty.
Why is that?
I honestly long for the day when I can shed this earthly skin and stand in the full, immortal glory that God intended me to be. Sure, I might still resemble this body. But I will be perfect. In Heaven, no one is going to care what dress size I am. No one is going to care that my face is round instead of square. No one is going to care that I have pale skin.
Here though, in this world of sin, people care. And people make you feel like trash and like crap and like dirt if you don’t look like what they expect you to look like. Large women are people too. Round-faced women are people too. Pale skinned women are people too. If you cut us, will we not bleed? Yet, we are treated as inhuman. As something vile and lowly. As something to be mocked, scorned, and pitied.
I long for the day when I don’t care if my fiance thinks I’m beautiful. Because I know that my Heavenly Father sees me as beautiful. He sees a wonderful, beautiful creation that has meaning and purpose, regardless of what dress size I am or how many zits I have.
It is my prayer that every woman would feel this way. That they would feel better when a man says he loves her because of her than when he calls her beautiful.
if you think i need to change myself, my appearance, or my body in the slightest for you…it’s probably you that needs to change instead

This is one of the most haunting photos I have ever seen. It is hundreds of wedding rings that were removed from those in Concentration Camps.
I haven’t seen a single post on my dash about it being the remembrance day of the Holocaust today so I guess it’s up to me
This is sobering.
