Beauty Series.

Hello everyone!

So recently, I saw a series on this lovely gal's blog. I've been following her for a few months, and she is awesome. The series is called "Project 31." It's 31 days of celebrating beauty in a way that is very inspiring and special. The whole idea behind the project is the passage in Proverbs that says this:

Description of a Worthy Woman
10 An excellent wife, who can find?
          For her worth is far above jewels.

11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
          And he will have no lack of gain.

12 She does him good and not evil
          All the days of her life.

13 She looks for wool and flax
          And works with her hands in delight.

14 She is like merchant ships;
          She brings her food from afar.

15 She rises also while it is still night
          And gives food to her household
          And portions to her maidens.

16 She considers a field and buys it;
          From her earnings she plants a vineyard.

17 She girds herself with strength
          And makes her arms strong.

18 She senses that her gain is good;
          Her lamp does not go out at night.

19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
          And her hands grasp the spindle.

20 She extends her hand to the poor,
          And she stretches out her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
         For all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She makes coverings for herself;
          Her clothing is fine linen and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates,
          When he sits among the elders of the land.

24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
          And supplies belts to the tradesmen.

25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
          And she smiles at the future.

26 She opens her mouth in wisdom,
          And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

27 She looks well to the ways of her household,
          And does not eat the bread of idleness.

28 Her children rise up and bless her;
          Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:

29 “Many daughters have done nobly,
          But you excel them all.”

30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
          But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.

31 Give her the product of her hands,
          And let her works praise her in the gates.

Now if that is not an awesome woman, who is? I strive to be like this everyday. Not exactly easy. I am so inspired by Project 31, here are the daily questions I'll be answering:

Day 1.  What does beauty mean to you?
Day 2.  What makes you uniquely you?
Day 3.  Who is someone you know who inspires beauty?
Day 4.  Style 31.  Post a pic of you in your favorite outfit.

Day 9.  What virtues do you value in yourself?
