The Great Artist
I was at a wonderful museum yesterday. All the artwork was done by the same artist and it was beautiful. And I’m sure you know the artist. I was driving on the Indiana toll road on my way to Notre Dame to preside at a funeral and I turned off the radio in my car to appreciate the paintings. The colors of the trees blew me away. What God has given us in His creation is such a marvelous gift!
I need to be more grateful. The changing of the colors let me know of the changing of the seasons and time for harvest. I also know Halloween is coming as there are pumpkins everywhere. So how about every time you pass a pumpkin, you stop and say one “Glory Be….” to simply and prayerfully thank God. Our Canadian friends just celebrated Thanksgiving day on Monday and I was reminded I don’t thank God enough for His creation.
I am aware that you who live in the western part of the country had your museum closed because of fire. But the same artist has a museum on the coastline. Just watch the sunset over the ocean. You too can see the wonder of this Great Artist.
