 There are many things in this world that are beautiful, such as rolling hills adorned

with wild ?owers and a small stream glistening in the sun as it tumbles over rocks

smoothed from years of moving water. But even that scene may not be beautiful to

everyone. What is unmistakably beautiful to me may not in any way be beautiful to you.

 I love the saying "love is blind" because I believe this kind of love is the most

beautiful of all things. When a person learns to look through each and every person to

reach the soul is when this type of love is experienced. This kind of love is greater than

one's super?cial self. This kind of love is forgiving and ultimately able to love someone

more than oneself.

 The best example of this kind of love is Jesus dying on the cross for all of us - even

those of us who are not worthy. At this time in my church we are in a time of re?ection

waiting for the celebration of Easter. I like to re?ect on my inadequacies and how I can

make myself more beautiful or deserving for God. I work hard at this because I know he

blindly loves me- faults and all!
