Today, virtue is not valued as it ought to be. Today, you see women on music videos wearing next to nothing and, on the other end of the scale, you hear about women focusing on their careers rather than getting married and having children.
Today, people are so outwardly focused. And it's really no wonder with the media coming in at us from every angle. Newspapers, radio, magazines, TV, the internet, peer pressure - it can be difficult to see what we really need to be focusing on: Christ.
It's like what a friend told me: "If he doesn't love you regardless of what you look like, then he doesn't really love you."
Now, I'm not saying that it's bad to take care of your outward appearance. It's certainly no crime to be beautiful.
I'm just trying to point out that in today's society, a lot of women just don't seem to value what it means to be a woman anymore.
From the way I see things, true beauty is not in the way your face looks, naturally or otherwise. It's not in being lean and toned. It's not in the clothes and accessories you wear.
A woman's true beauty can be seen in MOTHERHOOD.
So be virtuous ladies because you're worth it.
