Hello! I just finished editing my blog layout. I installed a new template, much simpler and looks more cleanlier than before but still I’m so undecided on where to place the widgets. Have a lot of thoughts I wanna share too but don’t know where to start. Movie review or book review? Or just a random thought that comes out of my mind everyday? What will I choose? Could you help me?
I’m also planning to change again my blog url, from blessedriza.blogspot.com to theimperishablebeauty.blogspot.com . I believed I am blessed by so many things so I came up with that url for all of my accounts (blogger, facebook page, twitter, tumblr). But later on I noticed my username “blessedriza” sounds like “Blessed Mary”, I don’t know why but I feel unease with that. So I think that theimperishablebeauty is much better to me, since I learned putting make-up, wear fashionable clothes and I always received compliments from others. As I also learned from Peter that beauty should not come from outside, beauty must come from within.
1 Peter 3:3-5 (NIV)
3 Do not let your adorning be external
—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry,
or the clothing you wear—
4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart
with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which in God’s sight is very precious.
We may look beautiful outside and receive a lot of compliments from others but how about the Lord? Do you think He will look more at our outward appearance? Do you think it is more important to Him more than of our inner self?
I’m not saying that we should not wear make-up, beautiful clothes and accessories, and even have a rebonded hair. My point is, if we like to be look beautiful outside much more beauty we should look inside and that is by reading God’s word day and night.
In addition, while you are earning compliments because of your appearance you also have to earn the praises of gratitude by helping those who are in need.
