Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful;

for beauty is God’s handwriting – a wayside sacrament. 

Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower,

and thank God for it as a cup of blessing. 

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I see Your face in every sunrise

The colours of the morning are inside Your eyes

The world awakened in the light of the day

I look up to the sky and say

You’re beautiful

~ Phil Wickham

Through the heart of tender mercy and loving-kindness of our God,

a Light from on high will dawn upon us and visit us,

To shine upon and give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,

to direct and guide our feet in a straight line into the way of peace.

~ Luke 1:78-79 Amplified

It was an early morning well rewarded:

first waiting in the dark,

next getting rained on periodically,

then being treated to this living canvas of light, shadow, shifting forms, colour,

and finally watching the Artist’s vivid brushstroke spread across the sky.

It was when I was happiest that I longed most…

The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing…

to find the place where all the beauty came from.”

~ C.S. Lewis, “Till We Have Faces”

How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank.

Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music

Creep in our ears; soft stillness, and the night

Become the touches of sweet harmony.

~ William Shakespeare
