After picking out some pink and purple flowers, I pushed Hawken into the store's garden center. There were so many blooms, so much color.
Just being around the beauty lifted my soul.
Beauty was and is God's idea.
"Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone forth." Psalm 50:2
Beauty has been here since before time began. God is Perfect Beauty. And when Beauty creates, more beauty is created.
Thank God for beauty today -- beauty in people, in creation, in animals, in relationships.
Notice the beauty around you.
Notice your beauty.
Notice other people's beauty.
(It isn't wrong to notice other people's beauty. They are God's creations. It is only when lust and the flesh get involved and bastardize it that it falls into the pit of hell. Lust and sin turn beauty into ugliness.)
Beauty -- what a great idea!
