The sunrise, of course, doesn’t care if we watch it or not. It will keep on being beautiful, even if no one bothers to look at it.
January 26th - seeking beauty everywhere
Beauty is whatever gives joy.
St. Edna Vincent Millay
Beauty is everywhere if only we have the eyes to see. Beauty lifts the soul and gives a moment of reprieve in this world of imperfection, enabling us to have perspective and to maintain peace amidst any storms. Beauty is not always realized through a life changing moment or a great epiphany. It’s not always hidden in a rainbow, or found skydiving at 5,000 feet above the ground. Beauty is often found through looking into a newborn’s eyes, in the blooming of a flower, or in paint peeling off an old fence. It’s often where you least expect it.
There is nothing that makes its way more directly to the soul than beauty.
There is beauty everywhere, we just have to stop and see it. It may be difficult to see on certain days, but there really is beauty everywhere even on the darkest days.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
