Today’s blog is entitled “The Theology of Beauty 101” and is an introduction to my personal perspective on beauty. Beauty and the beautiful have been around for thousands of years. Throughout the ages women have used lotions and potions to create a personal beauty regimen that has continued through this day.
I am a theologian often writing and thinking theologically regarding just about everything. On this blog it is about beauty, lifestyle, and career. Instead, I have a theology on these particular interests I wish to share with the becoming Lady. I say “becoming” because a refined and elegant woman continues to grow and mature throughout her life. She sees herself not only as what she was, but as she is, and who she wishes to become. She is in the state of becoming who she is purposed, meant and desiring to be, that is a Lady.
Beauty began to interest me in my early twenties. Since that time I have continued to indulge in beauty essentials from bath, body, hair, makeup, skincare, and fragrance. During this time my interests have evolved but at the core my preferences have remained the same. I love my essentials at the drugstores, boutiques, and exclusive department stores.
However, luxuriant beauty essentials do not truly make beauty. They stand in bare contrast to the woman they are created to adorn. Of course they can enhance and improve the outwardly appearance into a striking or sultry looking woman. At times a physically beautiful woman, or as my mother would say “a natural beauty” is not in need of beauty application on the exterior. In this regard, there is no guarantee that the exterior beauty will stand the test of time. Physical beauty fades. How a woman fades with it is up to her and her internality.
On it’s own, the beauty of a woman stands alone.
Thank you for joining me.
