  How I See Beautiful
 Written by Christina Genth Smith

 How do I see beautiful? As an artist, nature and animal lover and child of God, I see beautiful in a couple different ways: in the hearts of people, the joy of pets, the majesty of His creation, and most powerfully in the love of Jesus!

I see beautiful in the hearts of people when we choose to show LOVE in this broken world, JOY in adversity, PEACE amongst disagreement, PATIENCE even with frustration, KINDNESS where there is selfishness, GOODNESS in the face of wickedness, GENTLENESS over hastiness, FAITHFULNESS through hardships and SELF-CONTROL in our weaknesses.

I also see beautiful in the unconditional love and acceptance of pets, specifically dogs. They some how love us to the moon and back no matter what we say, do, or look like to them. I’ve heard it said, “You can look horrible, but a dog will look at you like you’re the most beautiful human being ever.”  Seems as though dogs can see nothing but beautiful!

I see true unrivaled beauty all throughout God’s creation from sunsets, to mountains, to canyons, rivers and oceans and all the amazing different wildlife species and creatures, leaving me wonderstruck. The works of His hands inspire me to emulate both His beauty inwardly in my heart as well as outwardly on my canvases when I am painting. Because of this, I view painting as a beautiful act of worship to God for these magnificent gifts surrounding us.  

When I see beautiful I see God. When I see God I see love. When I think about love I am reminded of what Jesus did for you and me…who takes away our ugly sins and restores us back to BEAUTIFUL! Heavenly Father, you are BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for sharing your beautiful with us.
