The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. ~ Elizabeth Kubler Ros
Isn't the above quote beautiful and perfectly written??? I heart this quote. The next time you meet a beautiful person, make a mental note and remind yourself that their journey was likely not an easy one. These extraordinary beings I'm convinced are called and equipped by a holy God and filled with wisdom and discernment because of their life experiences.
