POETRY & WORDS :: We were created to know beauty beyond what our senses can take in

IMG_0872

We see it in the burst of green which sprouts up from a thick, decaying layer of broken leaves in the spring. It fills our hearts the way of vase of daffodils fills a room, like a smile brightening every line of the face of the one you love after a long, long absence.

This is beauty.

And mountains and sunsets and the magnetic tide, beautiful songs and lilting poetry, and laughter, clear like bells; these are beauty. These things lift our spirits. They buoy us; they bring happiness. We’re created to see this, to breathe this, to be enveloped in this.

We were created to know beauty beyond what our senses can take in.

And all of this earthly beauty — a fire-tinged sky, the quiet breathing of a sleeping child,  velvet buds on a tangled vine — all this great, overwhelming, everywhere beauty is reflection of the One, the author of good, the divine Creator of all things bright and beautiful.

  1. Gina, I appreciate your description of beauty–and I also admire many awesome scenes in nature. One winter, the red berries from the Mountain Ash tree across the street froze on the tree. The berries were there when the birds returned in the spring. I saw birds flitting in and out of the tree branches one morning.I visited a friend that afternoon and when I returned home, every red berry had been consumed by the hungry birds. God had provided their feast from the Winter Freezer.
