What if God hadn't given us an appreciation for beauty?
I looked at a gorgeous magnolia tree in full bloom... coldly, with no reaction whatsoever to those delicate blossoms drifting lazily in the breeze?
I gazed upon a majestic, glowing sunset, the sky filled with glorious colors... without any awe or wonder stirring in my heart at the greatness of the Creator?
I glanced at a newly-opened, pure white rose, then at a pile of garbage... and noticed no difference?
Thank you Lord, for giving us beauty...
And the ability to see it.
