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!

      A sun set like sand art… how amazing and beautiful! And the blessing of a tree… such beauty. Thank you so much for sharing that with us Lisa!

  • cindy

    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…

    • Jennifer

      Thank you Cindy. It is just amazing how HE is in those details all around us!

  • Jen

    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.

    • Jennifer

      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!

  • Caryn
