Finally, brothers and sisters, whaterver is true, whatever is worthy, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if something is excellent orall praiseworthy, think about these things.
There is so much beauty around you. Each day is a treasure, a lovely gift to hold as a treasure of truth in your heart. Treasure is something you have to dig for, and the gift of seeing all that is lovely and true must be dug for. If you find yourself surrounded by ugly, in the midst of lies, caged in by hopelessness, then seeing whatever is lovely, pure, and true is not so easy.
The Lover of your soul treasures who you are. You are the lovely to Him, and He is the lovely, pure and all that is true to anyone that seeks Him. He is the One that can bring you out of every ugly place and show you how to use it for something lovely, He is the One that can reveal the truth to you, open your heart to hope, and wrap you in His purity. He is praiseworthy all the time, and worthy of all your respect.
