Why Such Beauty?

Light and Glory of God bursts on mountaintop

radiating, reflecting

stillness and peace

on rippling body of water

Love created, formed, shaped

mountain backdrop, skies of blue

brushed clouds and snow on canvas

dappled muted hues on mountain lake

Love kissed the sky with blush of pink

shades of blue

threw in contrast of light and dark

carved out cove of mountains and lake

Why should God share such beauty with us? 

I believe All Creation declared the beauty and majesty of God’s Holy Love the moment He
spoke it into being—yet it took a Savior to brush strokes of love upon fallen souls.

Love sent my savior to die in my stead;

Why should He love me so?

Meekly to Calvary’s cross He was led;

Why should He love me so?

Nails pierced His hands and His feet for my sin;

Why should He love me so?

He suffered sore my salvation to win;

Why should He love me so?

O how He agonized there in my place;

Why should He love me so?

Nothing withholding my sin to efface;

Why should He love me so?

Why should He love me so?

Why should my Savior to Calvary go?

Why should He love me so?

  4. So beautiful, Glenda. I never cease to be amazed and awed by the beauty of His creation–including those He created with the specific ability to paint beautiful pictures with their words. The actual pictures are phenomenal too! And by the way, thanks so much for your encouragement on my last post. Sometimes we seem to need it more than at other times at that was one of those times. Hugs~

    • Cindy, isn’t He beautiful…as the song goes? I love the way He speaks through creation and in our hearts. We would explode if we tried to hold it all in, wouldn’t we? I’m always grateful when we gives words to share to encourage others and doubly grateful when they are returned. Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day and walk with the Lord. Hugs back to you dear sister in Christ.

  6. Beautiful, Glenda – we can only hope to capture the astounding views every day, can’t we? While we were away in the Chesapeake area we came across many talented artists with their brush and paints – but no, we can’t duplicate the ultimate Artist who spoke it all in place. Amazing words and pictures to start my day praising Him for His loving provision, thank you for this wonderful post.

    • Thank you Verna,
      We can’t even begin to compare ourselves with the Eternal Artist and Word of God who spoke such beauty into being. And we can only humbly bow at His feet and wonder that He is mindful of us and longs to share not just the beauty of His creation, but His very self. Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gifts.
