Becoming More Beautiful

This is a sharp coral rock in Barbados, hurtful to touch, relatively untouched by the water.

This rock, on the same shore, has been smoothed and rounded by the constant force of the water across it at high tide.  It is softer, able to be stood upon by tender bare feet, an accommodating shelter of sorts.

Water is a relentless and powerful force that shapes, changes, and affects by its very presence.  Life gives us all lots of “water”…forces that change us.  We may not like the changes, we resist, but eventually, we realize….we’re stronger, we’re smoother, we’re more of a refuge for other people to seek, we’re more beautiful.  And I’m so thankful that God loves me enough to let me be more beautiful, more like Him.  Be blessed today, Lisa

  1. One of my favorite quotes, hope you like it: “Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” -Bruce Lee

  2. Really interesting pictures! Is that a fisherman’s net on the first rock? If so, it is no wonder that they left it and did not try to retrieve it. Neat analogy. To bad that there isn’t a way we can turn down the spigot once in awhile.

    • Yes, I think it definitely is some sort of netting. Sometimes in my life, I just want to disconnect the spigot! 🙂 And by the way, spigot is a weird word….we don’t say it like we spell it. It should be “spickit.” haha
