Live Pretty Not Hot

"Most girls don’t want to be pretty anymore even if they understand what it is. It is ironic that 40 years of women’s liberation has succeeded only in turning women into a commodity. Something to be used up and thrown out.

...When a girl retains and lives pretty, while eschewing hotness, the bulk of men who cannot appreciate the virtue behind pretty will move on to more fruitful hunting grounds in the pursuit of immediate gratification. Pretty requires too much energy to overcome. While there are some who relish the challenge of destroying innocence, pretty attracts the noble, the good, like a magnet."

Dear Readers,

One last personal thought this most beautiful December day I am I am celebrating my femininity as well.

I thank God for Brothers in Christ who will take the time to encourage women who are living pretty and not hot.

Thank you.

That says everything. I shared the article on my facebook. You'd never know women's lib ever occurred when it comes to stuff like this. Women are now nothing more than a commodity. This is progress?

Pretty goes deep into the soul. Therein lies the problem. These poor young ladies haven't the ability or the upbringing to develop their soul where pretty can take root. They think that pretty has to do with face and form. My heart bleeds for them and they dwell in my prayers that the Holy Spirit touches them and turns them around. Bless you too for persevering and for raising pretty daughters.
