Beauty Day 77

Find one beautiful thing every day and take a photo of it.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Beauty Day 77 Beauty for a Sunday Morning

 

I’ve lived in this house

with the cross on the wall

for five years or more

never until this morning

have I given a glance

nor considered its beauty at all

–not the shells pasted in

not the flower in the middle

nor the natural look

it’s meant to have

not this cross

but the cross behind this cross

the real cross

a thing of beauty–why?

it’s the cross on which my Savior died

God’s gift of love multiplied

by every soul who takes its light

and finds eternal life

it’s Jesus who died

and rose again

who pardons all

who come to him

for sins which he

had nothing to do with

all that power

he laid down

emptied himself

became a man

carried his cross

died upon it

that he might rise again

that cross a symbol

of all he did

of life everlasting

to all he gives

who come to him

in simple belief

that yes

he’s the One

and he did it

he really did it

I want it

eternal life

eternal pardon

for me
