It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside,
its whats on the inside that counts.
Found this while blog hopping at http://www.theinspiredhousewife.com/. Love it.
"This life thereforeis not righteousnessbut growth in righteousness;not health but healing,not being but becoming,not rest but exercise.We are not what we shall bebut we are growing toward it;the process is not yet finishedbut it is going on;this is not the endbut it is the road.All does not yet gleam in glorybut all is being purified."~ Martin Luther ~
“We — or at least I — shall not be able to adore God on the highest occasions if we have learned no habit of doing so on the lowest. At best, our faith and reason will tell us that He is adorable, but we shall not have found Him so, not have ‘tasted and seen.’ Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of Godlight’ in the woods of experience.” - C.S. Lewis, Letters to Malcolm Chiefly on Prayer
