Beautiful Girls

My Littles love Veggie Tales, I mean they really love Veggie Tales.  If they could live in the produce aisle I think they would.  As they were watching SweetPea Beauty the other day I heard this song from the other room and backed the video up to hear it again.  As a mom to two little girls and a woman that has looked in the mirror and not liked what I’ve seen, this song really struck a chord.  Our culture can be so shallow with regard to appearance and what is considered beautiful.  True beauty is a deep, deep thing that is very hard to explain but stunning to see.  You’ve seen it, the person that helps another just because they need a hand; the child that chooses not to tease; the volunteer at the hospital or nursing home; those acts of beauty that sneak up on us and sometimes we get to witness and see this true beauty.

Here are the lyrics for the song as well as a link to the video.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLaqNbQNo4w

BEAUTIFUL FOR ME Lyrics
Nichole Nordeman

Every girl young and old has to face her own reflection
Twirl around, stare it down
What’s the mirror gonna say
With some luck, you’ll measure up
But you might not hold a candle to the rest
“Is that your best?” says the mirror to the mess

But there’s a whisper in the noise
Can you hear a little voice
and he says

Has anybody told you you’re beautiful?
You might agree if you could see what I see
Oh
‘Cuz everything about you is incredible
You should have seen me smile the day that I made you beautiful for me

If it’s true beauty lies in the eye of the beholder
What my life and what’s inside to give him something to behold
I want a heart that’s captivating
I wanna hear my Father say

Has anybody told you you’re beautiful?
You might agree if you could see what I see
Oh
‘Cuz everything about you is incredible
You should have seen me smile the day that I made you beautiful for me

Close your eyes
Look inside
Let me see the you that you’ve been trying to hide
Long ago, I made you so very beautiful
So I ought to know you’re beautiful


Has anybody told you you’re beautiful?
You might agree if you could see what I see
Yeah
‘Cuz everything about you is incredible
You should have seen me smile the day that I made you beautiful
You’re so beautiful
Beautiful for me
So beautiful for me
Has anybody told you?

In case no one has told you today, this month or year.  You are beautiful!  YOU are so very beautiful!

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.  ~ Proverbs 31:30
