Falling off a cliff never happens all at once –
it’s the baby steps toward the edge,
the day-to-day decisions
over a lifetime
the slippery slope…
I don’t think there is anyone alive who would deny that true beauty can be found all around us – you just need the eyes to see it. It is in the air around us, invisible and delicious in its compounded molecules. It is in the sky – dancing in cloud formations, taking wing with birds in flight. It is on the ground, laughing in the soft grass, singing in vegetables and fruits as they grow. It is under the earth, in the riches and ores that fuel our function and feed our vanity. It is thundering in a waterfall, riding a rainbow, painting a sunset, calling from cliff to sea. God’s gracious and astoundingly creative fingerprints cover every detail; from the flagellum of a bacterium, to the ice- fire trail of a comet, there is much to see, smell, ponder.
Where do you see beauty in nature?
