Beauty on a Bike Ride

This past weekend, Arturo and I went on a bike ride through Burnett Woods, a park full of trees and trails that’s not far from our home. While out, I collected a few acorns to use for clay molds (photos to come later this week), and together, we enjoyed the beauty of the great outdoors.

When I was little, I used to always think of what fun the Lord must have painting the sky. (I know I’d sure have a blast if it were my job instead of His!) From cool cloud shapes and patterns on a warm afternoon, to the incredible swaths of oranges and red found in sunsets, I’ve always loved observing the vistas overhead.

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” – Psalm 19:1 (NIV)

I spend much of my time attempting to design and manufacture beautiful items. Our bike ride last weekend was a wonderful reminder that beauty doesn’t have to be “manufactured” to exist, for the Lord already placed it all around us.
