A dear friend of mine (who blogs over here) has inspired me to keep a diary of beautiful things.
I’m always finding a new excuse to start a journal, and this idea I knew I couldn’t resist. Keeping a diary of beautiful things could brighten my life and cause me to be more observant and appreciative of the beauty around me.
Beautiful things remind me of my Maker’s heart. I love beautiful things, because He loves beautiful things too. Creation testifies to that. He could have placed us on a dull planet, but He placed us on this earth where we have oceans and deserts and hills and meadows.
So often beautiful things are free, just waiting to be discovered. It can be the way sunlight slips through Venetian blinds in the morning, or the way that a baby’s cheeks dimple when he smiles so big.
I want to keep these things close to my heart. I want to capture the art that the Maker has created. I want to bring Him praise.
There’s so many beautiful things yet to be discovered, here are some so far:
♫ You make beautiful things out of the dust ♫
The many shades of spring green
Trees towering into the sky
The way that skirts make me feel pretty and feminine
“We love Him, because He first loved us.”
The crisp evening breeze blowing through the kitchen window
The way the moon makes me feel small
Some reflections on growing older
This song & video:
How about you…What is something beautiful that you’ve discovered lately?

Hearing my children recite verses and the Hebrew blessings from memory. It’s a beautiful thing for sure.
Oh!! Brits, I love that!!
Flowers….I just love the beauty of flowers with their intricate shapes, soft petals, and rich luxurious colors!
Oh! Yes! I love flowers too. And by the way, I love the imagery in your description! :)
I didn’t get to reading this until now, BUT We sang “You Make Beautiful Things” at church this Sunday and it was SO joyous! And worshipful and beautifully executed. So that’s one of mine this week too. =)
Yes! I love that song. :)
Also, just realized I unwittingly copied your blog theme in updating mine. Great minds think alike? =)
