Beautiful - The 49th Good Word in the “Good Words Project”

Updated on September 4, 2016

Beautiful --


Beautiful, —the 49th Good Word in this series of Good Words, Jo Goldsmith (Jo_Goldsmith11) gave us to encourage us to “see the Beauty” in every thing all around us to never give up our desire to be the best most beautiful creative writers we can be, and to inspire us to live up to our God given potential as human beings, to be what we are created to be.

What does beautiful mean?


Lovely, Attractive, Good-looking, Gorgeous, Stunning, Striking, Fine-looking, and Handsome


What does Beautiful mean to me?


I remember what my Mammaw (Grandmother) use to say, “Beauty is as beauty does, if your heart is good and pure inside, it will show on the outside.”

Beautiful is a love so strong that our creator sacrificed his only son for our sins, beautifully expressed in this song.


Thank you Maureen for the beautiful pictures

Beautiful

© by Shyron Shenko


Blossoms of every kind

Of every color and hue

Entwined on every blooming vine

Even poison ivy has its beauty too

Awesome is God’s creation

For everyone to see

Unfolding underneath the rainbow’s

canopy

Every blooming, living thing

Trees, reaching for the sky

majestically

Beautiful as they can be

Inspiring me

To reach as high as I can see

Friendships formed on HP

Each one

Uniquely beautiful to see

Everyone of you

Lovingly touching the heart of me

……………Beautiful




Beautiful

BEAUTIFUL

Beyond the realms of your imagination

Exists a world of wondrous things

Amazement and adventure await you

Unless you dare not dream.

Try to open your mind to the unknown,

Identify with the different and unique.

Find beauty and joy in everything around you,

Utter no cruel or hateful words, and above all,

Love life, and live it to the fullest.

— John Hansen/Jodah

      Checking this excellent poem out again. Spring has sprung and soon God's natural creations, trees and flowers, etc., will be beautiful and lush. So glad the leaves are finally coming out onto the trees and we can have some shade again.

      Hope all is well with you and John & Chipper. Blessings dear friend . . .

      When I think of beautiful, I think of all the beautiful poems you have written and published here. I think of how beautiful this planet must have been on the first day after it was created, and while it still has much beauty, a lot of it has been destroyed by humans who are still not satisfied and continue to pollute it with abandon.

      Sharing this excellent poem again.

      I do hope you will get your communications up and running again before Friday. We're to have dangerous storms tomorrow afternoon, so plan to stay in. Blessings to you and John. Take care . . .

      This was so beautiful Shyron. There is no other word to describe it! The photos you chose were a perfect fit.

      Your grandmother was a wise woman for our beauty truly lies within.

      Yet another beautiful work to compliment Jo's Good Words Project.

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

      Another excellent poem, as I have told you before. You seem to know just what words to choose and what ideas to express. I think anything must be meaningful before it can be beautiful. All these beautiful ideas and words come from within you, and only beauty can produce the same. Sharing this again.

      Hope you have survived this horribly hot day and stayed inside. I won't be surprised if sometime I go outside to my car and find this huge mound covered with sticky melted paint where the car used to be. Blessings and hugs and I truly hope you have been inside so you won't be sick.

      I did not know there was hail, I would have been nervous also. I hope you are staying dry -- It is uncomfortable to be damp.

      A beautiful poem that also makes a person think. Beautiful photos too. I especially like the irises, and the tree photo Maureen sent you. Voted up and ABI. Shared on HP and pinned to my 'Pink III' board.

      So humid outside. The rain was so hard las' night! And the hail made me really nervous. Saw some as big as marbles and some of it hit pretty hard. Hope you both have a great weekend. Blessings . . .

      Hello Shyron. I did write a poem and tried to email it to you but the email wouldn't send. I have had Internet problems. Your poem is much better anyway so it doesn't matter. Beautiful hub, voted up,
