Beauty

I think that we, as humans, look for beauty in people, places, and things. Just look at all the money we spend on products, potions, and paraphernalia to make us "beautiful." (Okay, be honest men; while women may spend the majority of that money, guys spend their fair share on "stuff" to make them more attractive or keep them younger looking....) Anyway, we seek after "beauty" in all its forms. Don't we? Something that is truly beautiful will touch our soul and fill our hearts.


I know there are many definitions and forms of "beauty." The look on a mother's face when she sees her children is beautiful. The reverence with which some approach their Heavenly Father is beautiful. The sound of a finely tuned voice or instrument is beautiful. Beauty, in all it's myriad forms, is present all around us. . .we just have to open our eyes and see it.



For the last couple of weeks, I've been surrounded by the beauty of God's creation in a part of the Country that most people "fly over." While one part of me is happy that this part of the Country is "off the beaten path," I'm sorry that so many of my fellow countrymen (and women) consider this part of our great Country to be too desolate to see and too hard to get to. So, let me share some of this beauty with you. The pictures really don't do justice to the scope, color, and diversity of the landscape. Our wonderful Earth is a beautiful paradise; if only we would open our eyes to see.




I hope that as you go about your day, that you'll look for and find beauty in this Christmas season; in all its forms.

I envy you, Sis, being there everyday, seeing this kind of wonder. Those of us who only make it back there only once a year (if we are lucky) Enjoy it! Think of us looking at taillights, traffic, buildings, hustle-and-bustle all day long while you breathe the "Cleanest Air in the Nation" (it says so on a plaque in the park in case you are wondering). Merry Christmas and please give hugs to all the family from us!
