The Living Art

I am seeking the beauty.

I am seeking the art.

I am finding Him.

I look closely at our hostas in the garden. I watch as they slowly uncurl each pretty little leaf. I watch as they slowly come to life.

Their colors seem to be in little blocks. Blocks of dark green, blocks of yellow. Blocks of light green, blocks of white.

I can’t help but smile.

They look just like a paint-by-number painting. Each little block drawn out carefully. Each block numbered. Each having a corresponding numbered paint to fill it in.

Beautifully coming together in a great masterpiece.

His creation. His masterpiece.

When you seek the beauty, when you seek the art… you will find the wonderfully created.

The living art.

A glimpse of Him.

Great and marvelous are Your works. Revelations 15:3

Have you see the art in His creations… what have you seen?

    Just since Friday evening I have seen a beautiful rainbow and last night the sun setting looked like ‘sand art’! The sun had orange stripes or ‘layers’ in it and was so beautiful! Yesterday afternoon I was at a picnic with my Sunday School class at a classmates home. They have some magnificant trees on their property. 1 tree provide enough shade for our entire group of ~ 30-40 people!

    This was so wonderfully simple and profound at the same time! Love these lines:

    “When you seek the beauty, when you seek the art… you will find the wonderfully created.
    The living art.
    A glimpse of Him.”

    And that is what it’s all about…glimpsing Him all around us!

    I’m glad I got a chance to come by finally today! And it is the perfect way to end His day of rest…

    Such a beautiful post, Jennifer! Simple words with such depth. I just keep thinking about how we so easily miss the creative masterpieces of God if we don’t stop and look. I almost missed sweet time with my daughter today because I was in such a get it done mode. The wonderfully created is truly all around us.

      You are so right Jen… it can be easily overlooked if we don’t take the time to stop and look. It is all around us!
