In the wee hours of this morning, I came face to face with Amelia and am in awe as to her beauty, in wonder as to what God has created in her, in what God will be creating through her. She is beautiful and yet, she is so much more than just that.
I think of the beauty of nature. I think of the beauty of faith. I think of the beauty of music. It's all alluring and I think this is so because I think it points us to Him who stands above all things, to He who is responsible, either directly or indirectly, with the beauty of these things.
They point us to God's majesty and in the end, to His love, something we all crave and need.
These are those thoughts I'm filled with on the morning of my granddaughter's birth.
This... is what life is about.
