Beauty in our midst

Today for staff meeting, each member of the Nozomi Project emailed one photo of something they have found beautiful this week.  Sometimes, just opening our eyes to look for beauty can reset our thinking and bring healing.  We loved the photos that were submitted... The theme was using Dostoevsky's quote, "The world will be saved by beauty."

Here are some of the images representing what we have found beautiful this week.  





What has brought healing and beauty to you?

What Dostoevsky might want to say to the Nozomi Project....

"The world will be saved by beauty."  -Dostoevsky


Today in our staff meeting we talked about beauty.  It's really sad to go through a whole day and never stop and look at the beauty that surrounds us.  Sometimes it's really small things that are really, really beautiful.  And sometimes it is big things. Our homework this week is to look for beautiful things we haven't noticed before, and to take a picture of it on our cell phones to share by next week.  

And we realized how very very fortunate we are to be in a place where we every day get to see broken things transformed into- something beautiful. Here is one example of transformation to beauty from our work this week.  We pray for eyes to see much more of the beauty surrounding us.
