So I’m in this Christian choir that meets about once a month all over our church district.

This weekend, I’ll admit I was a little shallow…and wore makeup just because everyone else was*. I usually just don’t bother, but this weekend I was like…well, so and so is, I don’t want to look “worse”…so I will too.

Yeah that was just dumb. Because during one of our songs, I saw one of the younger members looking back up at ME to see if she was doing the right things.

She wasn’t looking at me because I looked as good as so and so, but because I talked to her, helped her feel included.
(I’m not trying to be prideful here, lol)

So next time you’re tempted to put on makeup because everyone else is…just remember, it’s not how you look that will make people admire you and want to be your friend.
It’s what’s in your heart.
And ultimately, I’m pretty sure Prince Phillip cares more about that too :)

NOTE: Why Latte uses Prince Phillip and not Prince Charming.
Pretty much I’m obsessed with sleeping Beauty. It’s my favorite movie. Prince Phillip is the prince in that movie. He actually got to know his princess and fought for her.
Prince Charming saw Cinderella, and then sent his duke out to do all the work to find her. LAME! I don’t want a guy like that. I want a Phillip :)

*DISCLAIMER: I’m NOT condemning makeup AT ALL. I understand why people wear it :) I just choose not to most of the time, so when my only motivation for wearing it was to keep up with other people, i felt shallow. I don’t think makeup is necessarily shallow unless you’re wearing it to make other people envy you or something, or if you can’t go out in public without it on. That’s just not healthy :)

    Hee hee, oh my goodness, I totally agree about Prince Phillip! That is absolutely what I think! :)

    And very good point. Lately I’ve been too preoccupied with makeup. I think I’ll take a week off, just try to live inside out instead, and see how it affects my attitude.

    Eternally His,
