A Different Kind of Beauty

This is my neighborhood in Shenzhen, China. Population 13+ million. So many lives in one small space. Some days I look at this and really wish I could swap for your views of the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, Australian Gold Coast sunrises, or the soft Minnesota Northwoods of my childhood.

But today I look off my balcony and see this as an equally gorgeous vista. For it is a view of humanity. Precious, unique, important lives. All created in the image of God. Needing hope, light, love… especially in these days. So I thank God that He has brought me here for this moment in time. I really hope to have eyes of love that see the world from God’s perspective, observing the beauty of His creation even in a neighborhood like this.

“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:11

Shalom friends. ❤️
