This world is so full of beautiful things! I saw this flower at our State Fair the other day and thought,"God has filled this earth with so many lovely evidences of His love and creativity!" The way that each of these ornate flower petals are sown together makes me realize that God loves beauty, and our love of the beautiful is a reflection of Him! When we appreciate all that He has made, both for His pleasure and for ours, we acknowledge the Source of all life and give back to Him the joy that began in His heart toward His creation. Yes...this world is full of beautiful things!
