Thankful For Beauty from God's Hand...

(Alaskan summer)

I am thankful for beauty... from nature and sometimes our efforts.
It all comes from the Hand Of God...
 The Creator of all things lovely.
He forms beauty from the dust, some called man, others that come each season,
 year after year. 
We walk by, hardly noticing.

This is my favorite picture, taken in Sicily a few years ago. 
God's creation.

"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails."
Proverbs 19:21

 Ah, the beauty of man's hands. 
Where does his inspiration come from? 
If not God, then where?
 How can man create this,
 without the hand of God smoothing the lines of the brush?

Winter morning in our backyard one lovely Christmas season...
God's hands letting loose the falling snow,
covering our offenses and making all things beautiful.
How I am reminded of Him and all that is lovely when the first snow gently falls.

 The beauty of Capri.
Creation shouts Your Name...
Do we see You, Your power, Your Magnificence?

"Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end."
 Ecclesiastes 3:11

Do you take time to notice the beauty around you and from where it comes?
Do I?
