Supplemental Grace


Beauty in nature is not essential.
It is grace supplemented by the Creator.

Are the intricate patterns 
and complex functions
that we witness necessary?

Have you examined, close-up:


The design of a flower's inflorescence?


The veins in a dragonfly's wings?


The barbs and barbules in a bird's feathers?



The minuscule scales of a butterfly's wings?



Beauty in nature is not essential,
but I am grateful every time 
I witness these gifts of creation.
