Well, I just finished reading the most wonderful book ever (for the 2nd time)...."A Severe Mercy". I cried and cried and cried!
One theme throughout the book is beauty. A few times, the author points out how he has been seeking beauty rather than seeking God. This made me contemplate myself. Like the author of the book, I think I can confuse beauty with God. Yes, all beauty comes from God and that needs to be recognized, but beauty itself is not God. At times I think I seek beautiful moments, experiences, sights, etc. more than I seek God, Himself.
Hmm. So. If you have not already, please read A Severe Mercy, by Sheldon Vanauken. It may be a beautiful experience for you! (But hopefully the beautiful experience will not replace God himself!) :)
