An Extreme Makeover

Sometimes we see only ugliness
Not seeing the beauty within

Other times we see the beauty revealed
Forgetting the price of ugliness for our sin

dVersepoetspub.com prompt is to embrace something ugly and see the beauty in it. Christ took the ugliness of sin upon himself and paid the price for it so we could be beautiful in Him. Look for the image of God in everyone and you will find beauty.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

  5. Isn’t it amazing that we put a tortured body among all the gold… the beauty of this is ugly thinking about what it was.

    The ugliness of people that would do such a thing is the part that is hard to get past. I like how you presented the contrasts in this. And you are NOT a lazy poet. There is lots to be said for concise poetry. 🙂
