The Beauty of Creation

 Take delight in all things that surround us.

All things teach us and lead us to God.

All things around us are droplets of the love of God –

 Both things animate and inanimate,

the plants

and the animals,

the birds

and the mountains,

the sea

and the sunset

and the starry sky.

They are little loves through which we attain to the great Love 
that is Christ.

Flowers, for example, have their own grace: they teach us with their fragrance and with their magnificence. They speak to us of the love of God. 

They scatter their fragrance and their beauty on sinners and on the righteous.
Wounded by Love, p. 218, Elder Porphyrios
