UNFADING BEAUTY—Walk Your Talk, Peter Study❤️

Rather, it [beauty} should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet Spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”
—1 Peter 3:4

As I watch my beloved grandmother slow down my heart is drawn to this verse in ways that might not have been as significant a few years ago.  Her human life is fading, but her eternal life is looming.  It puts into perspective so many things.  I think of all the incredible accomplishments my grandmother has had...putting herself through college in her 40’s, going back and getting her masters in her 50’s, dancing with Dean Martin in her 20’s.  But it is the things that cannot be measured with human eyes that mean the most.  She was my constant encourager and believed in me when I didn’t see what she did.  She was my loyal friend that always made time to sit and listen to anything I needed to say.  Even in her weakened state she shows her love through her smiles, hugs, and kisses.  

My human heart grieves as I consider a world without her in it.  But my Spirit rejoices when I think that she is about to be made whole again. In this late and last season of life I am drawn, not to what she did, but the unfading beauty of who she is❤️
