She's Deflated!!!

Have you noticed the woman on the Columbia Tristar logo has gotten thinner?! I found pics online, take a look... the first one is from the 1980's and the second is the most recent.

Whatever happened to the average woman being beautiful? I hate seeing woman around me today so focused on how they look. It makes me so sad to see them fixing themselves on the outside, but deteriorating on the inside.
I have been re-learning recently that "Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised." Proverbs 31:30

I know that I too am guilty with caring too much about the outside than the in... I don't know about you but I would like to be praised, not lied to or mislead with my own looks.
Join with me ladies, check your heart to see if Satan is deceiving you. If he is getting you to give more time and attention to taking care of your body than the time and attention you are giving to the Lord, then you are being mislead! Take your thoughts and your time captive and determine to commit your WHOLE self back to the Lord.  
Here is something that really touched my heart and showed me how much Satan really has a hand in distracting us women...

SO TRUE!! It's amazing what the media tries to make us believe is how we "should" look.

Very true... Interesting (and scary) to see the transition!

I completely agree with you! It's so sad to me to see women who are so focused on their outer beauty but don't do much for their inner beauty. I would rather be beautiful inside than out, even though I am blessed both ways! lol I think you are absolutely beautiful as well, and you also have a beautiful heart & personality.

Hopefully all women who are struggling out there will go back to the Lord soon!

Imagine the pressure on young girls today to look - unreal. . .The new ideal, the unreal woman. Hummm. . .Not the one God created, but the invention of man.

PS - also tagging you for a meme, but I am making it optional.

You are on a great roll - of revealing the unrealistic expectations that are being subtilely thrust upon women these days.
Unreal!!! (Pun intended!)
