Spring drew on…and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily,

suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night,

and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.”

~ Charlotte Bronte, in “Jane Eyre”

Beauty is all that is glory and God is Beauty embodied, glory manifested.

This is what I crave: I hunger for Beauty…..

God revealing the weight of Himself, all His glory, through the looking glass of nature …

I pay tribute to God by paying attention.

~ Ann Voskamp

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

~ John McCrae

Thinking on freedom today, and its unspeakable price.

We ascribe beauty to that which is simple; which has no superfluous parts;

which exactly answers its end; which stands related to all things; which is the mean of many extremes.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

romancing Lily

romancing Lily

Across the crowded ballroom Cal saw her.  She was an elegant vision in white silk that took his breath away.

At last he caught her eye.  He flashed his debonair smile.  She fluttered her eyelashes and blushed sweetly.

Cal smoothly made his way towards her, his eyes never leaving her face.  Lily glided over to him, her gown rippling in her wake.

They met.

He took her white gloved hand and kissed it,

breathing, “My dear Lily, I’m utterly enchanted by your beauty.

Shall we dance?”
