There is beauty in weakness, tears, grief, realizations and awakenings. There is beauty in love, comfort and candle light. I see beauty when I look at the sun and the moon, when I look out the window physically and spiritually and see from the inside out. I am awed by the beauty I feel when I stand on the grass or in the snow and take a moment to breath in the air around me, savoring the sounds and smells. I see the beauty of the soul in the loving nature of animals, in the laughter and joy only found in childhood. I see the beauty in having to wait for that your soul most desires, in learning through many mistakes, in finding grace. I see beauty in the words of friends, the sound of music and the silence occasionally found, yet much longed for and needed. I see beauty in having my world fall apart and having to rebuild step by step, penny by penny. I am brought to my knees by the beauty found in hope and light. I am humbled by the beauty found in simple everyday things that nourish our mind, body and soul. And the beauty found in faith – oh the beauty found in faith; it is too powerful for words, it is like watching a seed grow into the most beautiful of flowers. Life may not be easy, it may not continually be filled with laughter or perceived joy, but it is filled with beauty !
