"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
