Thought for the Day--March 23, 2011: Body and Soul
Mrs. Horner, a wise character in the comic strip Luann, says to Luann, a teen who is obsessed with attaining outer beauty:
We all change our clothes, dear, but not our souls.It's very true that our bodies are but temporary vessels.
As we age, body parts head south, no matter how thin or fat you might be. It's just the way things are. If you are fortunate enough to reach old age, you will experience the natural aging process: wrinkles, saggy bosom and bottom, wattle chin, flabby arms, creaky joints, etc.
Keep in mind that losing weight is only part of the equation in making positive life changes; you need to work on your inner beauty as well.
If you are young, this certainty of life may be difficult to comprehend, but just know this:
If your soul is disordered, then it doesn't matter how lovely you are on the outside.Keep up the good work!
