Enjoy these inspiring quotes by Michelangelo
as you browse these lovely armoires I photographed at an
antique mall this week. Oh the beauty!!!
" A beautiful thing
never gives so much pain as does failing to hear and see it. "
(Oh, I see it!!! see it and want it..... sigh....)
"I saw the angel in the marble and carved
until I set him free"
(Although these are wood and not marble,
the artist saw more than wood... but saw with the heart
that which could be formed from plain wood)
"The true work of art is but a
shadow of the Divine Perfection"
Our lives are God's work of art ... he sees the beauty beyond our own vision
"The greatest danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high
and falling short; but in setting our aim too low,
and achieving our mark."
(Whoever made this armoire set their mark high!)
"Many believe ~ and I believe ~ that I have been
designated for this work by God.
In spite of my old age, I do not want to give it up;
I work out of love for God
and I put all my hope in Him."
That which we allow God to carve and design in our lives
creates a beauty that is eternal.
May we reflect love
and allow the divine Artist to carve from our lives
that which is beautiful in the details.
