Stillness and Beauty

Beauty is every breath in the Presence of a holy God…

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting…a cup of blessing.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science.” ~ Albert Einstein

“Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.” ~ Edgar Allen Poe

…spilled into laughter, wound about words, tenderly tucked into tears.

  14. This photo reminds of some of my favorite words to a David Crowder song: “And what was said to the rose to make it unfold, says to me here in my chest, so be quiet now, and rest.” Lovely!
