Taking a closer look at God's gifts...

It's the little things...

It's the little things that make life worthwhile and when you get right down to it, everything--big, little, or in-between--begins with something small. It may end up being big, but at the innermost core of everything lies a tiny miracle of creation.

Not everything that God has created for us is aesthetically pleasing, of course. Take the mosquito or the maggot, the hyena, every last snake in the world (same for spiders), the homely catfish, or any other example of creepy, crawly, slimy, or otherwise unappetizing lifeform. But at the center, at the very beginning of every creature, plant, or substance is a work of art. And all art holds its own beauty.

But you know what they say--art exists in the eye of the beholder. Beholding the art, really seeing it, has to happen before you can appreciate it. Art can't exist if it isn't beheld. And you can't appreciate what God has given you if you don't know it exists.

It's my hope that this blog will help you do just that. Every inch of this planet is covered with a beauty of one kind or another. We may have covered it up or shoved it aside or defaced it in ways that only human beings can devise, but it's there, nonetheless. And it's just waiting to be discovered.

Let's take a closer look at the path God has prepared for us.

See you along the trail...
