Thank you Lord
for making me see,
That You
are the beauty in me.
No makeup or hair,
or latest fashion,
can satisfy
this misguided passion.
To have and hold
the perfect self,
is not obtained
from upon a shelf.
But by my hope
in Christ
I inherit,
The unfailing beauty,
of a gentle quiet spirit.
(2004)
