Beauty Is Knocking

Beauty is not so rare a beast
Everywhere it stalks and surrounds
Are your eyes open to 
Understanding
Take time to see it
Your soul will thank you
Indescribable...
Stunning, staggering, stirring, soothing ... beauty
Kicking at your mind to be free
Notice...
Observe...
Come alive
Knit within everything
Imaginable is beauty
Nothing escapes the hand of its Creator
God


Every wonder at the beauty and power of a mind made in the image of God?  According to the world, Stephen Wiltshire is disabled.  I would tend to disagree.  What do you think?

Disability is one thing, but it's how a person deals with the adversity that makes them who they are. My company sponsors a bunch of Paralympians, and I've got to say: every single one of them is more impressive than us abled people who take everything for granted.

Thanks for the inspirational post, Trevor.
