Sun Bathing Goddess

Tan is beautiful.
If you don't believe me, then look at these ads. They agree!

Well, what do you think? Obviously when you have a tan, guys carry you around on a surfboard like a sun goddess...


Girls put a lot of time, and thought, into the color of their skin. We lay out at the beach or poolside and oil ourselves down to soak a brown glow. Or we hit the tanning beds in the cold seasons. American girls are fascinated with being brown, but what about if you can't tan? Are you an outcast?

Have you ever thought about skin color? Dark, light, or creamy -- it all is like colors of dirt. 

"Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature." ~ Genesis 2:7

I don't believe it's a coincidence! We were created from dirt. 

Your skin tone is beautiful, not because of what the current culture may say, but because God chose to make you the color you are. Being tan is not sinful, and wanting to have a healthy summer glow is great, but don't dislike your color.

Tan or not, it's lovely!


  1. I agree that all skin tones are beautiful. In the country where I'm currently serving, their beliefs are opposite; Beauty means having light colored skinned. It's hard to find lotion without bleach in it, and all the ads show girls with very light color skin.
    The Asian skin tone is gorgeous, but they don't see it that way. I pray women worldwide learn to love the skin they were given.
