Altogether Lovely

This week, a visit to Inverness, some warm sunshine and an opportunity to drink in and enjoy the natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands. What is it about countryside like this? What is it that makes it beautiful? Why does it give me pleasure? Why does it draw my admiration?
Philosophers have been grappling with those ones for centuries, so it's unlikely that I am going to be able to answer them. I guess there are just some things that are amazingly beautiful.
Similarly, there is something inexplicably amazingly beautiful about the Lord Jesus. Even if He never did a thing for me, He is altogether lovely.
Yes, he is altogether lovely.
This is my beloved, and this is my friend."
Song of Solomon 5:16
