beauty to ugliness

I just got my full size violin, I have been waiting for this violin for weeks. I don't think I have ever seen such a beautiful violin! Oh my, it shines with this golden touch, and the sounding is this pure crystal tone. It reminded me on a young girl's puirty. Many of you are probably thinking, "Now where in the world is Vanessa going with this?!"A young girl's purity is pretty much kept in a binding and hasn't been wasted as teens or even 10-12 year olds. The purity of a young girl is that of treasure so clean, she hasn't lost it. What is a little girl's dream, "I'm a princess and I'm waiting for my prince!" Isn't this true? She has in her mind to wait for her 'FUTURE MATE.' Sadly this mindset is dwindling more and more away, no longer do young girls dream of this, but instead going away from their homes and losing their purity with getting involved in immorality. This soft little pure girl protected by her father and mother is now a loud, all about me, I can do it myself kind of girl. As the years go on she has become involved with many different men, and clearly as we all know, she has lost her golden purity, and has foolishly wasted away her beautiful teen years. Just as I was saying about my violin, this beautiful insntrument, the pure rich sound it gives, and the gorgeous appearance, is fairly new. If I treat and care for this violin as nothing, just laying it around anywhere, allowing it to fade in the dust, it would turn into this, ugly, old looking instrument. It is the same thing with the girl, she has turned into this ugly immodest character and deep down in the heart there is a sense of regret. This feeling of regret and guilt grows and grows. She dreamed of all her life waiting for her prince charming to get her, but what has she done? She ran away with the world into the act of sin. Sin was lying right at her feet and she picked it up. Her mind told her, 'this is impure, what am I doing?" But not listening to her conscience, she takes up the world and indulges with it. The beautiful character and heart she once had, is gone, gone in the world. She wants help, but she certainly doesn't know how, nor what to do. Isn't this sad. However, it was her fault, wasn't it? She put herself in that situation, running away from her parent's protection. God has a vision for each one of us, he had a vision for that very girl. But foolishly she ran away from God, and took no heed to his calling. Just as that girl has acted that is the way our world pictures teens. What is the majority answer of the world when you say you have teen? "Oh my, you have teenager, well you must have headaches over headaches!" Don't you just abhor those comments? I most certainly DO NOT want to be recognized as a wild, uncontroling teen. I want my teen years to glorify my father on earth and in heaven. I DO NOT want to break my father's and mother's heart, nor God. This is why I chosen to stay under the protection of my parents, and to stay far from immorality. I DO NOT want my purity to fade away. A beautiful rose can be turned into a withering old fading rose with a blink of the eye. Why do you want to ruin your purity, when you can wait for your beloved? Patience my friends brings joy, while impatience brings, regret, sorrow, and pain!

This post is so true! Unfortunately, we've completely lost our sense of "purity" in our culture today. It's great to find another like-minded blog! Thanks for this encouragement!
