One of my greatest difficulties in consenting to think of religion was that I thought I should have to give up my beautiful thoughts and my love for the things God has made. But I find that the happiness springing from all things not in themselves sinful is much increased by religion. God is the God of the Beautiful-Religion is the love of the Beautiful, and Heaven is the Home of the Beautiful-Nature is tenfold brighter in the Sun of Righteousness, and my love of Nature is more intense since I became a Christian-if indeed I am one. God has not given me such thoughts and forbidden me to enjoy them.
