Sometimes I have seen myself as not beautiful. Years ago. But not anymore. We all have a inner beauty. And the hidden and inner beauty comes also from our friends and beloved. As a mirror of self-improvence. Our Father in heaven also want us to see our inner beauty.
"But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart." (1 Samuel 16:7)
