What is Beauty?

This is a Leafy Sea Horse. It, to me, is very beautiful, fascinating in fact.

"Everything has beauty,but not everyone sees it." ~Confucius


"Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old." ~Franz Kafka


"Beauty comes as much from the mind as from the eye." ~Grey Livingston


"He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him." ~Isaiah 53:2


"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised." ~Proverbs 31:30

"Life is beauty, admire it." ~Mother Theresa, from LIFE IS....

This is an image of Jesus on the cross. This, as gruesome as it may appear, is beautiful. Beautiful because this was the ultimate and final sacrifice for all mankind. The beauty is in the action, not the image.

What is beauty, but the glory of God manifested in His creation - you see it,

the Love He pours forth in us and through us - you experience it,

the sacrifice that He made for us - you believe it...

...What is beauty, but God?

None can compare.

That horrible death was beautiful.

It was TRUE LOVE...for our sakes.
