Beautiful

I found this on a friend of a friend's blog. I've read it before and loved it, so when I saw it the other day, I had to steal it. It's so true..and it's..me. It also has one of my favorite quotes. It's the one I'm striving to live out each day, during this point in my life. I put it in red!

BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN SISTER
By Maya Angelou

A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.


When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin
'I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.

'When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain..
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Pretty is as Pretty does... But beautiful is just plain beautiful!
