“The earth has music for those who listen.” ― George Santayana
Nothing helps lift my spirits quite as high or more quickly than a walk in nature, surrounded by God’s abundant gifts. Simple yet breathtaking. Serene yet powerful. I enjoy looking for what God is teaching me through this magnificent beauty He provides.
These trees growing and thriving in rock is amazing. We, as well, would do well to build our “house” upon the Rock.
Splashes of color amidst brown and green show us how we, too, can be beautiful while radiating the colors of God amidst the “rocks” and “weeds” in the world.
The fountain in the middle of the a pond littered with debris and coated with algae is beautiful and peaceful, firm on its foundation. We can be beautiful and peaceful in the middle of chaos and people acting less than beautiful, as long as we stand firm on a foundation of Him.
“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you… Matthew 6:28, 30 (NKJV)
