Surrounded by Beauty

I’ve been blogging about the Faith a lot, but I wanted to share some beautiful pictures of our drive/hike on the Blue Ridge Parkway here in Southwest Virginia this past weekend. I’m always amazed at the beauty in our world.

On a related note, as we drove by these huge, expensive (new) neighborhoods tucked behind small ranch homes that were likely built in the 1950’s, as well as a few mobile homes, I remembered an article Elizabeth Scalia wrote about beauty in our Catholic Churches, and how the poor deserve to be surrounded by beauty, as well. Well, God certainly does His part, doesn’t He? :)
