Beauty is Fleeting 

 Beauty is fleeting.

Not in age but in circumstance.

Tough paths may uncover wrinkles,

sickness can expose the worst.

envy… a dark spirit.

 

Assumptions are made,

beauty is at its prime while she is young.

Irrelevant beauty.

The fascination of such is too, fleeting.

 

Sound beauty can be found in a soul that is fearful of the Lord.

 A soul who’s concerned with pleasing a just God.

Who can see such beauty in this world?

None other than a man who also fears the Lord.

 

God is the component between a love that lasts in marriage.

 A soul that connects directly to outward beauty,

composes a relationship that is too,

fleeting.

 

“God should be first!” They say.

“Such a demanding God!” It’s true! 

Her heart sought Christ before her needs and she understands that…

It is for her own good.

She’s aware that her desires are too,

Fleeting

 

Her ambitions are restless.

And her dreams ever changing.

Her life, not really her own.

 

With such understanding comes this:

Everything she needs.

Everything that is true.

Everything that lasts.

Is attached to a God who

Never changes.

Sketch of My Godson by AuthKG

 My Godson Joshua is more than 6 months and he has the biggest eyes ever. He doesn’t like to look at me in the face and it’s hard to make him laugh. He laughs with my husband more. He sways back and forth when he sits on my lap and I love it. When he was a newborn like the picture below, his bottom lip was always in his mouth. It was so cute. He is adorable! A newborn face is difficult because there aren’t many significant lines. Not only that, all newborns look alike. 

I had to redo is face twice because I used grid lines. I don’t think using a grid is good for me. I erased the whole thing and started all over. 

The hardest thing for me was getting the shape of his face correctly. At first his cheek wasn’t chunky enough so I had to redo it as well. 

I made his nose too small but I fixed it by extending the nostrils. I noticed that my face proportion was incorrect so I had to draw face lines. 

The shading and lighting was difficult because I don’t have the proper supplies but I love how this came out. It’s def my style!
