COT: Today we played hot potato. We can learn a lot from potatoes. Potatoes are beautiful no matter what size or shape they take on. They can be made into long and skinny French fries that are salty and crispy. Or they can be French fries that are chubby and short with lots of curves. You can make them into hash browns of all different shapes and sizes. They can be creamy or naturally beautiful with just a little butter and salt. They are just as beautiful loaded with lots of yummy toppings. No matter what color they are or what imperfections they have, all potatoes are beautiful.Remember we were created by an awesome God who makes no mistakes. Each and every one of you ladies is beautiful. So many times we like to compare ourselves to other women. I know I am guilty of that. Remember that true beauty comes from within. 1 Peter 3:4 says: 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.
