Message for Women and Daughters: Love your body

 “Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.” 
1 Peter 3:3-4

Ugh. It's nearly swimsuit season. 
So I have an assignment for us.  We must read the following "Note to Self."
Share it with your friends and your daughters.
Stop focusing on your body, and celebrate God's remarkable design!

Thank you, Carrie, from Rhubarb Sky, for taking us up to 30,000 feet for a dose of perspective~ 
You may have saved our summer pool-side JOY!

Carrie looked over a few decades, spoke honestly about what she was thinking about her body and the tragic result~ we miss so many blessings when we spend time thinking about ourselves!

Dear 16 year old me: No. You are *definitely* not fat
