What I like most about Facebook is the faces that grace it: photos of friends and family, young and old, silly and serious.
Lately, I’ve seen a lot of baby faces, newborn-fresh, their heads covered in blue and pink beanies. The mothers look exhausted but still radiant somehow, the fathers look proud, everyone is all smiles.
Tiny hands that grasp Grandma’s finger, eyes that see (however dimly at first), ears that know their parents’ voices, lungs that now capture and release air, hearts that pump lifeblood through those tiny bodies.
Babies are born every day, every minute even. Yet each one is precious, each one a work of art, knit together by the hands of God.
Living, breathing beauty.
Do you think that babies or, for that matter, human in general (not just models) can be classified as beautiful? Why or why not? If so, where does that beauty come from? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
