Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Beauty.

I woke up to the backyard blanketed once again in beautiful whiteness. I admired the trees and their gentle bowing under the weight of they heaviness of a wet snow. We started the week off with the same beauty and I shared my thoughts and photos here .

But this morning my thoughts went elsewhere.

Beauty. My eyes were seeing it stretched out before me. And it continues to amaze me each and every time. It almost seems to impress each time with a newness all its own. As it it were never seen before.

My thoughts began to turn elsewhere …

To the passing of Billy Graham.

This week his eyes beheld the beauty of the Lord, his Savior.

Beauty unmatched. Glorious all His own.

I have read countless articles on this man in the last few days. Some more than once. His life, and now his passing, challenges me anew this morning:

“One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.” (Psalm 27:4, NLT)

I want to live my life so that one day I, too,
may gaze on the beauty of my Savior.


Today I am joining … Five Minute Friday and Faith On Fire and Faith ”˜N Friends and Fresh Market Friday .
