The answer to my questions about beauty is not subjective, a mere warm fuzzy reaction. Rather, the answer is a rising of our emotion and spirit to interact with the inspiring truth we behold about God. To understand better read my article by clicking on Beauty and Truth (3rd in a series)

Why beauty?

The hues, the colors, the trees and mountains, the vastness and unobstructed view.

It’s a basic question, really, related to why people write books, tell stories, write songs, or talk at all. We were made to communicate because we are made in His image. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1) Jesus wanted you to know about Him and that He is the communication of the Father for “no one has seen God at any time; the only begotten of God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.” (John 1:18 ) Not only did He explain Him but He also had it written down so that we could refer back to it and reference it as I have done.

Not all of us have a book in us or perhaps we do but have not found the resources of time and money and encouragement to pull it off. But we want to communicate like our Creator and we want it to have some permanence and purpose and we want a reaction so we know that someone is listening. Even if the reaction is critical it’s better than silence because we know we were heard and the opportunity is there to clarify so that we aren’t misunderstood.

So I have decided that even though the book has a name, the poems are several in number, the songs will never be popular, the articles are written, the pictures are on file,
and the thoughts are regular in occurrence I am not likely to communicate quite to the extent I desire without putting it out there for many to see. I can reference this page when I do have a conversation that includes files herein and I can muse, though ever so poorly. In short, I can communicate. I hope that you will react to my occasional verbal outpourings and find some glory given to the beginning of all communication, Creator God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
