Beauty is not long hair, skinny legs, tanned skin or perfect teeth. Believe me. Beauty is the face of who cried and now smiles, beauty is the scar on your knee since you fell when you were a kid, beauty is the circles when love doesn’t let you sleep, beauty is the expression on the face when the alarm rings in the morning, it’s the melted makeup when you have a shower, it’s the laughter when you make a joke you’re the only one who can understand, beauty is meeting his gaze and stopping understanding, beauty is your gaze when you see him, it’s when you cry for all you paranoias, beauty is the lines marked by time. Beauty is what we feel in the inside which also shows outside us. Beauty is the marks the life leaves on us, all the kicks and the caresses the memories leave us. Beauty is letting yourself live.

BOOK REVIEW: “Twirl: A Fresh Spin At Life” by Patsy Clairmont

When you were a child, did you love to twirl around in a circle with your hands stretched out, until you got dizzy? Did you fall to the ground in laughter? Do you miss those care-free days? As adults, we live lives of chaos and we have full schedules all the time. We tend to try to fit God in where there is room. Quite often, our busy lives push God out of His number one spot in our lives.

This book is done in 26 one-word chapters. They include Pen, Dance, Gratitude, Bravery, Edit, Snap, Poetry, Stars, and Fragrance. Short chapter titles and short chapters make this book an easy, fast read. But that doesn’t mean that this book lacks in any way. Patsy Clairmont’s humor and wit are all over the pages. This book begs us to take time out of our busy lives to be a child again; to twirl.

I found this book to be quite refreshing. I would highly recommend it, whether you’re a busy professional, a college student, or a single person.

By this method thousands of humans have been brought to think that humility means pretty women trying to believe they are ugly and clever men trying to believe they are fools.

I just finished this book. I highly recommend it!

The word hell (gehenna) occurs in the New Testament twelve times—eleven on the lips of Jesus. It is not a myth created by dysmal and angry preachers. It is the solemn warning of the Son of God who died to deliver sinners from its curse. We ignore it at great risk.
