FMF - Beauty

Friday, 23 February 2018



I see beauty around me in so many things.  Give me a camera and the photos I take reflect that.  I love the simplicity of a seed pod in a plant in the fall. 



Leaves that have fallen in a lake.    


Mountains that proclaim God's creation and remind me how small I am.



Beauty is all around us.  God's creation is beauty.  There is beauty in joy and beauty in misery.  There is beauty in things that destroy and beauty in regrowth and refining. 

We live in a culture that teaches a false sense of beauty in the physical but beauty can come from within.  The saddest thing I heard was from our teenage girl saying she was ugly.  How can she not see that she is beauty?



She is who God created her to be.  She is one of his image bearers.  She is beauty as fragile as the seed pod and as strong as the mountain.


I am joining up with the Five Minute Friday link up.  Come check it out.

  2. I love your pictures too. And you're right - there is beauty everywhere, in the big majestic things like mountains and the tiny obscure things. And in your daughter. I hope she comes to recognize, own, and celebrate her own inner and outer beauty - just as God does.
