~The Beautiful Ones are Born~


Imagine that you wake up one morning to the shrivel sound of a small voice, crying as though someone knocked its little head against a hard wall. Aghast with utter dismay and a little bit of shock you suffer yourself and drag your still too tired feet out of bed; you proceed straight to your sun-lit porch, ignoring the shining rays of the already too bright sun. Then you see her, the baby. She’s hidden in the moistness of the grass outside your window, kicking and screaming at the top of her lungs. “Who would have done such a thing?” you silently ask yourself, secretly cursing the mother of the child. And so you put on something more than just your boy shorts and start running down the spiral staircase.

Immediately you see her you stop on your tracks, wondering if this whole drama is even real. But then she cries again, and your heart does a double flip because something in you is unraveling. With the love of God invested in you, you carry this child and hold her close to make her stop crying. And then you notice her eyes…such beautiful brown eyes. You start to notice other things too, like the way her hair curls to the tip of her neck…or even the way her mouth starts to curve into a smile. And that’s just it for you. Gosh, is she beautiful? Another beautiful child has been born, here and now, in this very moment. Another child with great talent to give to the world. Another Bill Gates, or another Obama. Another Ghandi or another Ralph Waldo Emerson. Another Abraham Lincoln or another Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. You wouldn’t know yet unless you see her grow. You wouldn’t know yet, would you?

* * * * * * * * * * *

Gone are the days when we said “the beautiful ones are not yet born,” for they are within our midst today. Yes, the beautiful ones are you and I. If you don’t believe it, look at yourself. The funny thing is that we are born in every single generation.

See, God don’t make ugly. That’s undoubtedly my resounding theme for this year. There’s something ‘different’ in each of us, and it’s not a coincidence either. So I am beautiful, and you are beautiful. The question is whether you know it or not. If you don’t know it yet, please look around you and at this economy. Were you created for something more? Were you created to bring something good into this world? I guess it was President John F. Kennedy who said “ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country.” Now, let me dare to say it God’s way: “Don’t question or doubt that God created you as a marvel and a beauty, but find that beauty in the seasons of your life.”

He has made everything beautiful in its time…

We are all beautiful in our own different ways...we've just got to start believing it...!!!

Lolia said...

See now believing it is the hard part...You may think you're beautiful whether inside or out and then get hurt when someone tells you otherwise :(

But I agree, God don't make ugly ^_^

...You wouldn’t know yet unless you see her grow. You wouldn’t know yet, would you?...

God don’t make ugly.

Don’t question or doubt that God created you as a marvel and a beauty, but find that beauty in the seasons of your life.”

Remi, United Kingdom said...

Reminds me of a song by Christina Aguillera, titled "I am beautiful". Yes, we are beautiful in the very unique way we have been created... knowing and believing who we are in God, helps to affirm the beauty he has created... the beauty that is you and me...

Thanks for sharing this... much love x

chichi said...

I loved this post it is so on point. especially for us females who easily get insecure about something (oops! is that just me?!). 'God don't make ugly' - Now ain't that the honest truth!!

long time since i'v been here! feels like a warm hug( in my mind!lol).

Jaycee said...

NoLimit...thank God. Lol.

Miss Iyabo...seriously. I think the reason most people don't believe it is that they really don't know who they are. If we really understand who we are as individuals, and what our purpose on earth is for, then maybe we would start to see why we are beautiful.

Lolia...the getting hurt part, yeah that happens. I guess that's why we cannot accept what people tell us all the time. A true friend will tell us maybe how to correct a make-up flaw, or how not to leave our bras showing, or what hair-styles would look better on us (as women~for men what better hair-cuts)...but they should never ever say that you're ugly. Because in actuality, beauty always shines.

Experiences of an Achiever...for real...I concur with what you said. By the way, I really like your name...:)

Danny Bagucci...Yes, it is hard to accept. But if we make up our minds to accept it, it will ultimately be easy. How are you?

Rita and disGodkidd...:)(that's what I do when I don't have ab appropriate response...lol...don't mind me o)

Nevender...you're welcome. *Hugs*

ablackJamesBond...abi o...

Simeone...no, He doesn't o...lol.

Afrobabe...I already knew that...or else all those numerous dudes won't be chasing you all around town...lol.

Robyn...you've come again o. Lol...Mr. Poet. Okay, I'm flattered. Lol.

The Life of a Stranger...we can't even thank God enough. Maybe that's why the Psalmist had to ask God, "what is man that You are mindful of him?"

LG...thank you Baba God o...:)

Olufunke...yes, you definitely are. Look at your beach picture na...lol.

The Poet's Voice...Amen. Thank you (and I did have a beautiful weekend).

Funms...I am reiterating that sentence too o...

Kafo...I liked that you picked picked up on the key...I reallt liked that...(because we just have to "wait" for the right time when He will make what we've been longing for beautiful). If we can see it now, we may have to wait a little longer. You this deep girl...

Rem....I love that song...

Chichi...don't worry its not just you...lol. Feel free to add me to the list. I've got freckles and pimples I constantly worry about...and errmmm...others. But sha, I am beautiful. Lol.
