Invaluable Beauty

About the time I feel entirely unproductive and worthless I find I’m in exactly the right place. When beauty grips me in the most remarkable places I can feel God nearby.

At the woodpile, for example:



“Prosperity knits a man to the world. He feels that he is ‘finding his place in it,’ while really it is finding its place in him.” C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters


The one thing I ask of the Lord
    the thing I seek most—
is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
    delighting in the Lord’s perfections
    and meditating in his Temple.

Psalm 27:4 (NLT)

  1. Everything around us testifies to the Glory of God. Nature’s beauty is priceless and unbeatable and the amazing thing is that it can be found everywhere.

    • I appreciate that God’s beauty often grabs me, even when I’m whizzing by, too far up to notice the gap. ☺ So today there’s One Less Stone.
