Beauty is God-given and Man- given.  We work together in the grand scheme of things.

What I see in the picture above is a grand landscape fashioned by the Hand of God/man.  God created the heavens and the earth.  Man is given responsibility to tend this gift- the blue skies, the majestic trees and abundance of green symbolizing life and the many animals that depend upon it.  Recognizing the life that is in you and where it came from originally is the beginning of knowledge.

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases;

it can never Pass into nothingness.”   ~Keats
