In Others’ Words: Beauty
“Beauty …. is the shadow of God on the universe.” ~ Gabriela Mistral, Chilean Poet, Desolacion (a poem)
One of the advantages of living in Colorado is that I get to savor the most a-ma-zing sunrises and sunsets. We’ve lived here 13 1/2 years now, and I haven’t seen the same sunset twice. The colors are stunning: vivid oranges, startling pinks, deep purples …. My favorite sunsets are when the sun disappears behind Pikes Peak and the mountain is backlit, as if it’s on fire.
And, yes, I catch a glimpse of God-the-Creator in those sunsets.
In Your Words: Where has God cast his shadow across your world in a particular moment of beauty?
