Another Look at Beauty…

lanternThis weekend I took my first trip ever to Fredricksburg, TX. I’ve wanted to go for years, and even though it was a short trip, I think it was well worth it. I love looking at all the pretty houses and browsing the cute little shops.wreathpeach tree tea room 1

Neither was it to get some grand new “revelation” about how I do life or my work or about my future (although part of me would have liked that). The end result, I think, was to remind me of beauty. (Almost like God is saying, “Don’t forget, this is part of who you are; this is good in you…”) To awaken my heart to dream again…to imagine, to create. And to remind me of this part of who God is, too. He is a God of beauty. He is creative, full of life. He makes everything beautiful…and I am His daughter…so no matter where I am, I can create beauty, I can bring life, I can be creative to see the beauty…

“When we serve God with joy, we in a round-about way encourage others to serve God with joy. Artists appreciate another’s art, joy is derived from another’s joy, and passion feeds off and grows from another’s passion.”
