Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy

In a world where the astounding and extraordinary have become almost commonplace, where it is increasing rare to be really shocked by anything, it is still possible to be happily surprised by the unexpected.

But one lone bloom stood out. Its colors were so brilliant, and its petal design so exquisitely arranged, it was truly amazing! We can be glad that God the Creator loves such beauty.
