I was reminded of this wonderful Mary Oliver quote by my blog friend and kindred spirit, Linda. I'm thankful for Mary Oliver's way of wordsmithing - just what my soul needs to understand.
This quote goes hand in hand with everything I'm learning in my current study of the book of Genesis. As a believer in Christ, I can and should think about the beauty God created and be grateful. He could have made it only functional, but He didn't. He made it beautiful, too.
