Beauty, What is it?


What is Beauty?

I have been asking myself that question lately as I had put that
statement at the top of this blog.

"Seeking Beauty in Everyday Life"

On Art Wolfe's Travel to the Edge on Sunday he was talking
to a woman about beauty and she said it was fleeting, like a snowflake.

I asked my husband and he said "God speaking to us."

Beauty moves me, but exactly what is it?

To me it is:
Fresh picked fruit
Flowers
Sunrise and Sunsets
Fluffy clouds
A newborn baby
A child's smile
Kitties pink nose
Dappled sunshine through the trees
Ocean waves
Steam rising from a warm cup of tea
Art
Seeing a persons soul shine through their face


Please tell:  What is Beauty?

Being with those I love and all healthy, happy and full of joy is beauty to me..........
My family, faith, friends and
all the glorious good in life
is absolute beauty to me as well.

Hmmm ... I'm going to have to ponder this one. In fact, I think I'll make it my "writing prompt" for tomorrow's journaling!

A golden boy's freckles and a flawless summer day.

I see beauty every day in your posts Marilyn, and I think your list of what beauty is pretty well covers it all! And the rose picture is so beautiful.

Beauty is a meeting with the Divine inside and outside of ourselves. :o) ((HUGS))

Beauty is all around us - we miss a lot of it! It's in the little things, the simple things and the beauty God created all around us.
