A Beauty to Behold

Pam Ford Davis

I waste my time in any imaginations of being a beauty to behold; I guess I am not in danger of breaking any mirrors or cameras as I pose but am not a portrait painter’s dream for glory either. Photographers will not be placing candid snapshots of me in their portfolio in hopes of advancement and passersby likely give me a second glance. Poor pitiful Pam.

What is beauty? Is it face-paint or skin deep? “For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him (Isaiah 53:2 NRS).” How could I be so blind? I do not gaze upon beauty in a mirror reflection or see it revealed on a model’s runway; beauty is soul deep.


  1. 1

    Yes, “to God be the glory, great things He has done!”



  2. 2
    Dicky Says:

    The real beauty of a person is down deep within his/her heart, which should reflect the glory of the Lord.


  3. 3

    Maybe I need to learn to stop squinting, allow God to open my eyes and heart to His word and perfect will for my life…


  4. 4

    You’ve revealed an eternal truth, but it’s all too easy to see with the eyes than with the soul. Could we call that progressive vision? 🙂
