A Cup Overflowing, 621-640

Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: 
"O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

My search for True Beauty continues:

#621  lavender morning skies

#622  sound of my heart beat -- and my personal rhythm of life

#623  girl's day spent with Adrianne

#624  races and crossing the finish line -- regardless of what position we finish, "We win!"

And we did!

#625  carpet of petals after a storm

#626  early Saturday morning and the love and grace God showers upon me

#627  waking of creation: God calls the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting (Ps. 50:1)

#628  seeing God present through His people even, especially, in the wake of violence and tragedy -- the Boston Marathon bombing

#629  the feel and earthy smell of dirt

#630  fresh vegetables
Hand picked

and cooked

#631  joy in the morning sun

#632  kale smoothies and thoughts of green flowing through my veins

#633  Spring centerpieces: beet stems and baby rabbits

#634  impromptu dinner partners ... and stories
Dozier and Dot Blackstock

#635  celebrating baby brothers
I do love these "boys" so much!
#636  wild turkeys

#637  white cows dotted midst blooming dogwoods

#638  sounds of raindrops on a tin roof

#639  meeting and watching the potter himself: Cody Troutman

#640  lizards in hotel rooms and learning to marvel rather than scream

True Beauty worship...
