Seeing God

We are creatures of Beauty, we look for it, long for it.  When we see it, we are connected to the One who is Beauty, who created it.  As a photographer, I look for beauty...searching for evidence of a Creator.  I peer through the lens, frame it, click it, capture the beauty.  It's all around us, obvious in the grand and majestic,

but harder to see in the simple and small.

But, He's there, in and around everything...we only need see.  When we open our eyes to Beauty, we open our eyes to God.  Every time we see Beauty, we are given a gift.  A gift to be thankful for.  The more we thank Him for the gifts, the more we see Him, the closer we feel to Him.

I committed to a challenge, to be thankful for One Thousand Gifts, 
to see God,
to find JOY!
