Behold the Beauty of the Lord (Psalm 27:4)

I saw the sun rising above the horizon, framed between the earth and the thick cloud bank.  I was reminded that the sun is not affected by events on earth, no matter how wide spread they are.  It steadily shines, even when we can’t see it.

And the delicacy and intricacies of the different flowers cause me to marvel at the diversity in nature, and beauty which like quantum activity requires there to be an observer.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder even though the observer doesn’t create the beauty.

I stop to admire the glories of God in the small things of this earth.  It is worth stopping to note God is discovered in the details.

And my favorite insect, the bees are back to engage in life-giving behavior.  In this, they do God’s will and reveal God to us.

Flowers and bees, together they form a symbiotic relationship that speaks to us humans of our relationships both with creation and with God.  We need both for life.
