Psalms 100:2

"...serve the Lord with gladness..."

Forget about whether or not others will be grateful for your selfless service, or whether they will even notice it. As God's beautiful woman, you don't do what you do to get anything, you do what you do because of who you are, because of the person God is making you into -- a virtuous woman who is beautiful in His eyes!

Selfless service is the greatest beauty of all. It's the beauty of our Lord.

-Elizabeth George

Hi Bethany,
I found your site through Ryan's blog and Emily Schuurmans' blog (I think you've met her sister Sarah?), and just wanted to thank you for this post. I found it very encouraging!! I enjoyed looking at your previous posts! (Especially the wedding pictures you've taken!)
