I find it fascinating how the feminine ideal evolves over time. Just look at the woman in the picture above. Her demeanor is so quiet and pleasant and her beauty unobstructed by bells and baubles. I long to be like that woman, but often times I am struck by the want for sparkle and shine.
Titus 2: 12
"Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world"
