Finding Beauty in Imperfections

These are a few bonus pictures that I want to share from the dentist appointment we had the other day.
JonathanThis is 5 year old Jonathan. He is our budding photographer.

Instead I’m embracing my son’s creativity and posting his pictures on my blog.

These pictures may not be perfect but neither am I. However I see the beauty in these pictures despite all their imperfections. phoneThat’s one step in building a strong rock solid family. We need to be able to see the beauty in the imperfections.

Our children need to see that we love them, even when they make mistakes. They need to know we are proud of them even though they are not perfect. We must show them that they are still beautiful, inside and out.

How about you? Have you found beauty in the imperfections?

Today is Hannah’s birthday. Hopefully things run smoother than they did on Elijah’s Birthday last week. At least I have eggs now. 😉  But a perfect day or not I’ll be sure to post about the beauty I find in it.

    I like that way of thinking about family, about your children. Nothing is sadder to me than parents expecting perfection from their children, and disappointed with them for being less than perfect.

    Love this post, Anastacia! Just finished a Bible study on choosing right attitudes. Agreeing with you that it’s important to see beauty in the imperfections rather than being critical! God bless~

    Anastacia, this is a lovely thought. Life is not all lined up and looking straight ahead and big smiles. It’s beauty is in its surprises! Thanks for your words.
