BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

Most of us have probably heard this saying quoted above, but what exactly does it mean?  What do you think?

Each of us is an individual who sees things differently.  Therefore, what may appeal to one person may not to another.  Likewise, what one individual may see in something may not be seen by another.

For example, these little, orange and yellow beauties, to me, resemble tiny bells.  Held upright, the delicate petals of orange, coral, and yellow take on a more regal appearance in my eyes, a star-shaped one.

Then there are these tiny, lavender and white blooms that look like partially-closed umbrellas with a decorative touch around the edge with the faint, white, scalloped trim.FLWRS (PURP)

And lastly, these cute, little whatever they are.  Although they don’t remind me of anything in particular yet, I am still fascinated by their appearance.  It seems nowadays that I try to find art in everything :).  But again, to me, every bit of creation, from the smallest to the greatest, just shows how awesome our Creator is.  (Psalm 86:8)

So what do you think?  What do these tiny flecks of natural creation look like to you?  And what do you think the saying, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” means?

Good-night.

From my heart to yours,

Maxine
