I was watching the Country Music Awards last night, when low & behold here comes Carrie Underwood. Her singing was amazing. She was sure to entertain. Especially, since she had on her shorts, baring her legs, again. We saw her knockout legs on her video “Remind Me” with Brad Paisley. And her “Good Girl” video, and ….. get the picture?? Yes, Carrie Underwood, we all know you have amazing thighs, so you are welcome to put them away, at any time. Seeing Carrie out there on stage, looking gorgeous makes me feel like any other red blooded American woman. Well, mad. You see while sitting there in the living room watching all 72inches of Miss Carrie, with me, was my husband & my 8 year old daughter. My husband was all glassy eyed, staring at the t.v. My 8 year old daughter said, “Mama, her thighs are so pretty.” It’s not that I am not trying my best to keep my daughter from having body issues, as it is. Now, I have a gigantic perfectly bodied singing woman standing there in front of us. That’s a lot to try to live up to. There’s not many women out there that are as beautiful & talented. And here she is making the rest of us look bad. I mean what she has going on is almost unrealistic.
My friend SC a little something to post about on Facebook about Miss Underwood:
So I’m surfing through fb on my lunch and see a video of the cma fest preview. I love carrie underwood. I loved her voice from the first audition. However, for once I would love to just watch her sing without having to stare at her thighs… While she balances on stilts to make them look more pronounced. All the while feeling like I am the most inadequate woman alive. We get it… She looks amazing. Now put em away. Okay… I’m going back to my tortilla crusted fish lean cuisine now….
I am glad God doesn’t have an unrealistic view of beauty. He wants us to be more beautiful on the inside. He wants us to have a clean heart. In Psalms 51:10 it reads: Create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me. He wants love for one another, inside our hearts. John 15: 17 These things I command you that you love one another. He wants us to have the fruit of the Spirit, as well. Galatians 5: 22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self control. Against such there is no law.
Remember God does not look at a person, the same way we do.
I Samuel 16:7 …For the Lord does not see as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.
