A wayside sacrament

This is all too easy to forget, I think:

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting -- a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. That is a good reminder. And a gorgeous painting.

  2. I totally agree and am so thankful for the beauty of the earth. Sometimes it takes my breath away or puts a lump in my throat. Thanks for this very important reminder.
