The Brilliance of Our Creator

As I walked upon the beautiful ocean shores this past weekend, I found myself amazed by everything… The incredible sea life, the rippling waves, the delicate sand. It was all so beautiful and majestic. As the wind blew through my hair, and my skirt flowed freely in the salty air, I couldn’t help but think about how intricate God made each thing on earth. As He painted this life, so much love and beauty was instilled. It is impossible for man to observe creation without admiring all of its loveliness.

As I captured the following photographs, I truly saw that loveliness in our Lord’s creation!
