Looks can be deceiving

Isn't this lettuce just beautiful?  so cool and refreshing but if you get close enough to it and take a bite, the BITTERNESS overwhelms you...it is now in the compost pile..that is all it is good for
This rose that we call Granny is absolutely beautiful...it blooms all summer and the fragrance is divine..rich and heavy.....BUT...if you get close enough, the thorns will tear a hole in your arm...they are vicious.....all that beauty draws you in but you better watch out!!
This rose is so pretty but if you get close enough to smell, it has NO fragrance at all.and the thorns are awful.....so it is just pretty from afar........

My goal in life is to be who I really am..the woman that is the real thing..all the time..day in and day out...I do not want to have any bitterness that gets you after you get close to me..I had rather not be bitter at all....
I don't want to have any thorns that hurt you if you get close to me.....I had rather be thornless..
and the fragrance, well, I want to have an aroma that draws you in so I can love you...not so I can hurt you.....
I think this is a worthy goal as women..to be sweet, thornless and fragrant..and to be able to love no matter what..

Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
         But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
