God Thinks I’m Beautiful, Will That Hold Up In Court?

November 16, 2012

So . . . a television news program just told of a proud new daddy who video taped his wife throughout her pregnancy and completed the video with a closeup of his new child.  It was a touching video showing a father’s love.

They followed this story with one of a man who took one look at his newborn daughter, and grew so angry, he filed suit against his wife for having an UGLY child.  He, it seems, got even more angry that her appearance as he knew it was not natural.  It seems she’d had plastic surgery before meeting him in order to improve her looks.  He  took her to court and was awarded a six figure settlement, the story reported, which his wife must pay in retribution for giving birth to such an UGLY BABY.

Guys, I’m not pretty either.  I’ve never been pretty.  I’ve been reminded of it daily through my entire life.  Now, I say this solely because I’ve been told so.  “Hey ugly” is a phrase I’m very familiar with.  Do you know what? Neither my identity nor anyone else’s is defined by society.  I’m a Christian and a much-loved child of the King of Kings.  God created me exactly as I truly am.  He knows me as His beautiful child.  He doesn’t make mistakes.  I’m not a reject, this new baby isn’t, and none of you are either.  It is high time we looked for what’s real and stopped being thrown off course by society’s blindness!  You want to change the world?  Try taking a good look at it!   There’s beauty out there that some people have never and may never see!  Take a leap of faith and see it for yourself!
