Beauty as far as the eye can see

This week Bonnie - The Faith Barista asked:
What is it that breathes beauty for you?
and I thought:  All I need do is open my eyes.

There is life, life abundant that unfolds before me.
Explosions of light, colour, peace falling hard.

Tears spill, like the falling of rain as I gaze on the work of His hands.
For who am I that He loves me enough to share all that He has made?

When I view and consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained and established, What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of [earthborn] man that You care for him?  Psalm 8:3-4 Amplified

This life He has given me is vibrant, raw, electric
living nerves exposed, on the surface
sensitive to pain, beauty, joy
wrapped and braided together
each thread woven by His skilled fingers

May my eyes remain open to see and my heart open to feel every bit of it.


Stop over at Bonnie's to share and read what others have written this week.

I love that verse from Psalms!
This week, when I was praying, I was telling God how amazing it is that He could care about me, or people at all in fact, and He said "David said the same thing, remember..". I had to think about it, but I finally remembered!
Those photos are beautiful!
