I took my markers that I carry around with me and traced the words. It was colorful. And it was beautiful. And the tension melted away.
God created beauty. He delights in it. Just look at the world around you. The flowers. The colors. The rainbows. The people.
It's hard to be tense when you're surrounded by beauty. It's why people spend vacations in beautiful settings. It's why I color and write with colored markers and pens. It's why rainbows make me happy and fresh flowers (that I'm not allergic to) make me smile.
Beauty relaxes. Beauty invites. Beauty draws. Beauty brings peace.
