His beauty demands a response…

“God is beautiful. His beauty demands a response that is shaped by that beauty. And that is art.”

From my morning readings in “Scribbling in the Sand“, by Michael Card.

We see the beauties around us, minute and immense, intimate and profligate, comforting and terrible.  And there are the beauties we will never see, but which we know must be out there.  These beauties can shape our creativity, focus our art, give us something to aspire to.
