.As I ponder and soak in as much as this feeble mind could grasp about the beauty of God, I realize-- the splendor of creation is not the same level or intensity as the Creator's beauty. It is more like a dim reflection. I would compare this to how the moon does not give off its own intrinsic light, but rather it "glows" by reflecting the sun's light.
.I see reminders of God's beauty when the sun's rays burst through the clouds in an evening sky. I see these reflections of God's beauty when I hear children laughing. I see it when an older person looks at their spouse of many years and they still have a sparkle in their eyes for each other.
