What is Beautiful to You?

I was visiting a new blog today,
and the question was asked,

"What is beautiful to you?"

In my thinking of what that answer would be,
I realized there were way too many things I thought of as beautiful.
It put me in such a grateful state of mind thinking of that.

Here is part of what I wrote:

A walk by a stream with my Lord.

The laughter of my grandchildren and
their excitement when they see us coming.

My husband's smile and warm welcome when I come home.

A starry night. A deep breath, and a sigh of quiet contentment.

A hand reaching out for help.

I guess you might say they caught me in a poetic mood.

But in thinking of those things,
it quieted my sole, and set my mind at rest.
It brought about a peacefulness in my being.

We do surely have so much beauty surrounding us,
if we only take the time to look.

What is beautiful to you?

God Bless You as You Follow After Him.
