True Beauty

I've been going through the archives of www.jodylynne.blogspot.com my first blog dating back to 2008. I'm still saying the following seven years later posted in 2010. 2010--I have been having a discussion with my husband regarding how much or how less we as women do to look attractive without being a distraction. I for one like a new outfit,  with earrings and maybe a bangly bracelet to match.
  • How do I know when I've gone too far?
  • Or what about not wearing any makeup or tasteful clothes?
  • Isn't God the creator of beauty and didn't He give us eyes to enjoy the His beautiful creation?
  • What does 1 Peter 3:-4 really mean?
 "Do not let your adorning be external--the braiding of hair, the wearing of gold, or the putting on of clothing--but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious."
 I think there are two extremes where there is too much paint on the barn or not enough. But the other extreme is a distraction to me as well. What about our hearts? Do I have the imperishable beauty that is not just precious but very precious in God's sight? 
2017- I recently came across this from Audrey Hepburn
The beauty in a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart; the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
