Beauty is Healing

February 23, 2015 | My Jottings

Hello friends. I am working up to sharing more in depth about my beloved husband Michael’s recent move to Heaven. There are so many things swirling slowly around in my memory and I want to get them all down in black and white before they begin to fade, God forbid. It’s a comforting thought, to know he didn’t stop living, he just stopped living here.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share this little video with you. If you haven’t seen it already, you’re in for a treat. I don’t know about you, but I have known for a long time that God’s beauty is very healing. I think it’s why even people who don’t believe in God will instinctively travel all over the globe to place themselves in front of a majestic mountain range, or a zoo full of amazing creatures, or a turquoise, transparent sea. Because our bodies and spirits respond to and feel the healing power God has put in nature. I am not talking about any New Age ideas….just that there’s probably a lot God has done that we’re not privvy to yet, and His beautiful creation does something to us. I’m sure others can articulate it better than I, but I feel touched, moved, shifted, when I behold His glory in His creation.

Seeing this tiny hummingbird sleeping peacefully and actually snoring did something to me today. It made me praise God and cry in gratitude that He allows me to see such beauty. I feel almost undone sometimes when I see things like this, in the best possible way.

Do you think God might watch over you at night as you snore, and delight in you, His creation, as we delight in this tiny hummingbird?

I think He might….

    Oh yes….”undone” ! Nothing touches me more than knowing God wants to delight us with HIS innumerable creations in nature ….but even more than that…knowing He created earth just to share with US , HIS created children! Yes! “Undone”! Oh what does Heaven hold!? Michael is rejoicing I am certain!
    Thank YOU Julie …for sharing your love of life & keeping us aware of the little miracles all around us …even a snoring humming bird! So darling!

    Your phrase, “Oh what does Heaven hold!?” made me cry this morning, Linda. What a beautiful thought for us today. I keep trying to picture what Michael might be doing but I know no eye has seen, no ear has heard….

    Thank you for stopping in here, dear Ember and Linda…. xoxoxo

    I am so sorry for your loss. So many first and sadnesses for you. And, God will comfort you with God winks and reminders of His love the whole way. Praying for you. Julie
