5A Thought: Embracing Beauty.

On this Mother’s Day week, I’m celebrating traits of my mother’s character which shaped my life. Mother loved beauty–she delighted in the beautiful goldfinches coming to feed at her window feeder. She cherished her antiques. She nurtured me in appreciating all genres of music and took me to museums, art exhibits, and concerts. She was a music teacher; played the piano; and had classic taste. I am grateful for those influences which I celebrate in my life. What gifts of life has God brought to you to celebrate?

Ps. 27:4  “One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.”
