The marriage vows often include, “for better or for worse.” Unfortunately, people seem to negate those words as soon as trouble hits. Even more unfortunate, is the propensity for people to decide that their aging spouse should be traded in for a newer version. People are far too willing to give up on love when it stops looking like a teenager. It’s time to learn about loving your spouse beyond the wrinkles.
But, if you simply can’t endure your own natural aging process, we suppose you could invest in Skinicity botox. They’ve been providing people with dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle treatment, and botox since 2007. And, they have achieved the International Standard of Excellence in Aesthetics and Cosmetics accreditation. They can also provide you with IV vitamin infusions, and plastic surgery consultations if you simply must look younger. However, maybe the quotes that follow will change your mind.
Quotes about Wrinkles
As we said previously, we want you to love one another for the hidden person of the soul. To look beyond the wrinkles and value the truth of who your spouse is within the skin. Even the Bible tells us that beauty is fleeting (read that verse). Once we realize how trivial the superficial outward appearance is, the better prepared to love our spouses for better or worse, we will be. Maybe these quotes about wrinkles will open your eyes:
- “To me, the word wisdom means ancient knowledge. It’s the kind of knowledge you not only see but feel when you look into the eyes of an elephant or stop for a moment to marvel at the deep wrinkles on its skin, both of which I believe contain the truths learned from each intentional step their feet and those of their ancestors have placed upon the earth.” Molly Friedenfeld (Read more about wisdom)
- “THE BEST people are the good old wrinkled people with a sparkle in their eye, a wink when you walk by or a toothless smile saying you are doing just fine …” Robert Wesley Miller
- “Wrinkles are engraved smiles.” Jules Renard
- “Age should not have its face lifted, but it should rather teach the world to admire wrinkles as the etchings of experience and the firm line of character.” Clarence Day Jr.
- “Wrinkles? Why all the fuss? Think of them as lines of distinction; marks of maturity.” Alex Morritt
- “By contrast, my wife at fifty-two yeas old seems to me just as attractive as the day I first met her. If I were to say this out loud, she would say, ‘Douglas, that’s just a line. No one prefers wrinkles, no one prefers grey.’ To which I’d reply, ‘But none of this is a surprise. I’ve been expecting to watch you grow older ever since we met. Why should it trouble me? It’s the face itself that I love, not that face at twenty-eight or thirty-four or fourty-three. It’s that face.’
Perhaps she would have liked to hear this but I had never got around to saying it out loud. I had always presumed there would be time and now, sitting on the edge of the bed at four a.m., no longer listening out for burglars, it seemed that it might be too late.” David Nicholls
That last one should do well to bring the severity of this truth to life. It’s time we all looked beyond the wrinkles and loved our spouses for who they are, not what they look like! You can read more here.
