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

Beauty Through my Eyes: Ladies in Lavender, Joshua Bell

"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I believe making time for beauty makes us better; whether it's observing the beauty of creation, being moved by great music, seeing the world through poetry or being transported by a painting. There is joy to be found in the organic rhythm of beauty all around us. The more we open ourselves to appreciating beauty the more we will see it. So, let me share with you what I find beautiful, I hope it will touch and enrich your heart.
I am moved by the music of violinist Joshua Bell, his talent and expression are compelling. I found a gorgeous video combining photographs of a lavender farm and the music "Ladies in Lavender", written by Nigel Hess, performed by Joshua Bell. I would love to share it with you. Turn up the volume and embrace beauty for a few moments.

Will you take time to incorporate beauty into your weekend? Look for it all around you and embrace it!
