beauty...


Never lose an opportunity of seeing

anything that is beautiful,

for beauty is God's handwriting, a wayside sacrament.



Welcome it
in every fair face,
in every fair sky,
in every flower,
and thank God for it
as a cup of blessing.


Ralph Waldo Emerson



beau·ty -\ˈbyü-tē\ noun 1: the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit .

Synonyms: loveliness, pulchritude, comeliness, fairness, attractiveness.

Antonyms: ugliness.



One thing I ask of the Lord,

this is what I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

all the days of my life,

to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord

and to see him in his temple.

Psalm 27:4
