hello to all my fellow rose a la mode readers! seriously, how much do you love this blog? i’ve spent many hours pouring over it. i just love how sweet & sincere linda is- she’s such a natural, darling gem of a lady! i am so honored that she asked me to guest post today.
before i keep chirping away, let me introduce myself: [i’m lissa from through the looking glass blog.] i’m a doting wifey, grad
student, & the new kid on the fashion bloggin’ block. i titled my blog through the looking glass because i’m completely enthralled by the concept of a mirror.
[have you ever thought about what a mirror actually does?] it reflects with clarity; it faithfully shows a true image; it imitates. as women, we tend to avoid mirrors, scrutinizing ourselves for what we see.we always think we aren’t enough-not fashionable enough, not skinny enough, not pretty enough.
[what do we spend so much time comparing ourselves to?] …who really knows? we never will look exactly the same as someone else. our uniqueness is what makes us beautiful, each & every one of us. it is so tempting to compare our wardrobes, our bodies, our “stuff”. if we are always changing & molding ourselves to be like others, we lose what’s truly beautiful: who we are, created perfectly, with purpose.
when i read the Bible, i’m reminded that i was created for a higher purpose & that purpose reaches beyond my own appearance & finds it’s resting place in God’s hands. i only know my true beauty when i see through His looking glass.
[when you look in the mirror are you seeing yourself or everybody else?]
hold tight to who you are & never, ever let go.
so we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but unseen.
for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
-2 corinthians 4:18-
