the fruit of her hands

"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies." —proverbs 31:10

a boy once told me of this when i was 17,
and i had forgotten this truth.

but he reminded me of this again
and he didn't say i was hot. he said i was pretty. and he said it twice.
i didn't believe him, like i didn't believe the 17 year old.
but it dawned on me today. there are still good parts about me.
it's possible that i can have something better.
that i'm not broken. that nothing is wrong with me.
that it's not that i'm not good enough.

and he thinks im beautiful. i don't know if he knows how much this means to me.
not that he thinks im beautiful, but that i know he meant it.
but it woke me up and let me feel again. and i know that this is how God sees me.

"Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised." —proverbs 31:30

It's true. You are not broken, nor are you not good enough. The key is first to believe it yourself.

thank you. im hoping i get to this point soon.

but i love how the most random thing can make you feel better. i went to zupas and in the same sentence/breath of asking 'do you want any soup' the guy squeezed in 'you have pretty eyes'

and he made me think the same thing you did...
maybe i still have some good parts....

you totally do. youre just amazing. :D
