Made for another world

"If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in the world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." C. S. Lewis

A Basket Full of Thanks {Mondays}

I continue my count to 1,000 gifts this week. On Saturday I was thankful to have spent the day with my little girl sharing in the enjoyment of beauty. It was a treasure to explore what she liked and found interesting, as well as share with her what touches my heart. Her explanation and description of what she was seeing in a painting or sculpture was delightful. This week my list of gifts is all about beauty.

51. Free art to be valued and enjoyed, enriching minds and hearts.
52. Bonding with and learning more about my daughter through the experience of art.
