Most Beautiful Thing

A few months back I received a question on my blog that got me thinking for a few days and then I nearly forgot about, until yesterday.

What is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen?
This. This is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. My boss recommended this one highway to take to my destination even though it was a little bit out of the way. 

I was driving for 10-15 minutes on this road through bean fields outwardly upset over the fact that I can see bean fields any day I want in Iowa. I was questioning to myself his definition of 'breathtaking' and 'beautiful' just as I turned the corner and came across the ocean on one side with cliffs on the other.

I screamed. Then I cried a little bit. Yep, I am that person. I was just so overwhelmed by God's beauty through creation. It is no doubt that I feel particularly close to the Lord in and through nature but this, this was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. His goodness, surrounding me 360 degrees.
