The Ultimate Source of Beauty

As I sat outside this evening working on some homework, I couldn't help but take in the breathtaking beauty of my surroundings. You may be thinking, "GBS campus, Mt. Auburn, Cincinnati....beautiful!?!" However, this is not at all what I was thinking about, for it goes much deeper than that.

Today in the 21st century we must reach far into our immediate perception of the world to grasp its true beauty, the beauty of God's creation: the emerging colors of yellow and orange, the faint rustle of wind through the trees, the soft rainfall of leaves, the hazy light of dusk slowly descending as the sound of crickets begin to chirp.

THIS is true beauty in all its fullness.
