The Beauty of Order

With the new year, I'm celebrating the beauty of order. I'm taking a clue from the order that appears in creation and trying to transfer that to my office. I'm well on my way but still have some things to deal with. In the meantime, I'm enjoying an empty floor, margin around my computer, and the now visible wood grain of two vintage tables that serve as my desk. You wouldn't know it to see my office on an average day but clutter drives me crazy. I'm good about "editing" clutter from other rooms but my office can get out of control at times. When it does, I put my blinders on and look only at my screen or out my office window to the view of the woods below. For the last several days, I've seen a male cardinal come and go to a certain spot in the brush, strikingly red against the browns and dull greys of the trees and shrubs. He reminds me that creation is filled with order. He, or rather His creator, inspires me to invite some of that order into my office and other areas of my life as well. And this new year is the perfect time to do that.

Ahhhhh.... I've found another kindred spirit! I went looking for a quote and your blog popped up. Am I ever glad.

You talk about beauty.... my own passion in life. The more I write about beauty, the wonder of living a beautiful life, and enjoying the amazing beauty of Creation, the more I see how beautiful God Himself is! And I love thinking about how much He must love beautiful things to have so many for us to enjoy in this world! And I share that enjoyment with Him, and now I see you do too!

I hope that we can get to know each other more..... I'll be back to really visit when I have time to read more of your postings.

Joy for a wonderful day!
