Beauty All Around Us

Cedar Island 005He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecc 3:11
       Beauty is found in many unexpected places.  A maple leaf turning red with the new season, the brightness of a young child’s eyes, the loving glance between life-long married couples, and the sparkle of a washed plate after dinner.  Of course, we all appreciate works of art created under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

For years, I’ve had a pattern of morning Scripture reading and prayers.  I do my best writing when I go immediately from prayer to the computer screen.  There’s something about being in His presence that gives a new burst of creative energy.

I’ve come to believe that nothing is created outside the Creator.  Only He gives the inspiration to create something of beauty, whether music, visual art or written words.

You also have creative gifts.   Let your day be positively impacted by spending a few moments in His presence.  Ask Him to open your eyes to the beauty around you, and ask for insights how you may add to the beauty of this world through your particular artistic talents.  You may be surprised at the doors He opens!

    Dear Candy, your words resonate well with me. I love this time of year with its beauty. have taken pictures of some trees where the contrast is so brilliant in the sunshine. something to cherish before the cold season returns.how easy it is to worru about this or that instead of trust in the Lord even when knowing his faithfulness of the years. coming into his presence with thankfullness reminds me that worry doesn’t accomplish a thing. yet I am so apt to think that it’s up to me not him. hah. We are raised to be responsible and yet there are so many things we don’t have control of. the little girl at a babyshower last weekend can’t me more then 15 months,but she like many a young girl has been entranced by the theme song from Frozen. her rarmest little face was singing the refrain Let it go..let it go….so sweet. so true…some things we need to let go.. have a great day!!
