BEAUTY--(B) IN THE SERIES CLIF FROM A TO Z
Driving from our home to the church building one evening around sunset I came up over a ridge on Lincoln Drive that overlooks the city of Phoenix. Just as I reached the point where I was looking out over the city, the sun, in all it's glory was sinking behind the city and everything was aglow.
BEAUTY BEYOND WORDS!
TEARS STREAMED DOWN MY FACE. I FELT THE PRESENCE OF GOD!
Why is ugly in and beauty out today?
To me, beauty is to be found in:
Flowers at the pulpit during a Sunday service.
Sun shining through the stain glass windows of a church building.
An elderly couple sitting close together holding hands.
A mother or father tenderly holding a child on her/his breast.
Waves breaking on the beach.
Rain drops blowing gently on a window and slowly rolling down.
Spacious skies, purple mountains, amber waves of grain.............
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO END TO BEAUTY!!!
Have we grown tough, weak sighted---unable to see. Or is it true, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and every "Beholder" see things differently?
I hope "your beauty" touches your heart as mine does me. If it does you will feel the presence of God.
