"If I have but 2 pence, with one I will buy bread, with the other,
hyacinth for the soul."
My sister put this comment on my facebook after I posted a picture of this little hyacinth that I brought home from the grocery store with me.
I guess it is an old proverb, but I had never heard it before.
However, its beauty captivated me.
It describes the need of my heart for little touches of beauty here and there.
My conviction is that beauty, especially the beauty found in nature,
is essential to a healthy spirit.
God created man to live in a garden of perfect beauty,
one planted and designed by Him.
He made the beauty of nature for us to enjoy.
