Carnival of Beauty: Being Made in God's Image
Welcome to the Carnival of Beauty, this week travelling to Scotland to reflect on

The Beauty of being Made in God's Image

Through her Scribblings, Blair notes that God took us from being "without form, and void" like the earth, to forming us into his likeness and filling our void with his Breath of Life.

The Happy Wonderer, Ellen, wonders about being made in God's image, the call to be holy as God is holy and how this relates to beauty. In Be Beautiful, she shares a practical application that has helped her be more aware of holiness or the lack of it in her daily life.

Barbara gives us Fuel for thought, sharing a reminder God gave her about his work in creation through her own children in She Looks Just Like Her Father.

Here at A Woman who Fears the Lord, I have been reminded while writing After Our Likenessabout how mankind was designed to reflect God's person and character.

Amanda of following an unknown path reminds us of the Creativity of the Uncreated One in making mankind with desires and abilities to create themselves.

Next week, we will be hosted by Enjoy the Journey where we celebrate the Beauty of the Resurrection. Please consider contributing something as we look forward to Easter weekend!

And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18

Thank you so much for hosting, Keziah!!

Sorry I got all confused about the deadline. I read 9 and just stored 9 forgetting that 9pm your time was 5am my time. I've got to get a handle on the whole time zone thing. :)

Maybe what I really need is more sleep. :)

Can't wait to read the posts this week!!

Thanks so much for your work here again, compiling all our 'stuff'. I always enjoy your blog and can't wait to make my tea and get reading the Carnival.

And Amanda...I like the idea that all I need is more sleep. Now if someone could just invent a 36 hour day.... :-)
