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.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What an odd but very true statement. Which is why
we have so many types of visual art expression.
Then there is photography with just as many ways to take pictures. Art comes from the
heart of the individual which is kind of what the definition states, pleasure to the senses.
I love nature and see much beauty in nature whether it be in the form a painting or a
photograph. And the sense of pleasure can be from the massiveness of the art or the
delicateness of the art.
In my opinion, the best artist of nature is God. He can take moisture and heat and roll
them together to create a dangerous system that boils and billows in the sky until it can
no longer contain itself before it falls again to the earth anywhere from a gentle rain to
dangerous winds and hail that are destructive. I watch this upcoming storm today as it
moved into our area and was moved by its massive and fearsome beauty.
While earlier today I was enamored by the beauty of my miniature blooms in my
hanging baskets. So tiny and delicate but an equally beautiful creation of God.
And I think that bares in mind how he created us. We are all different sizes, colors, have
different likes, talents and gifts from Him to do His purpose. Even those who seem like
they have nothing to give or are trapped in a body that doesn’t function like others and
we have to have artificial means to be able to function. Praise God for those devices. The
point is, we are all valuable, gifted, needed and used by God. Regardless of our
circumstances or our mobility issues. Nothing is ever wasted by God.
So I remind you of your beauty so that you can remember the beauty of others and
always show kindness as a means of this beauty.
