Nature’s Beauty

Nature’s Beauty

What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong describes it perfectly—the beauty that is all around us. Often we take it for granted. Now is the perfect time to take a walk outside and experience this awesome world. Be amazed again as when you were a young child. The wonder is still there when we are not distracted. Gaze at the endless sky, watch the sway of the trees as you feel the wind, and listen to the birds sing. Quiet yourself as you release the pressures of society and absorb the gentleness of the air. Let the sun or rain sprinkle you with delight and witness the glory of a loving God.

Rain

‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭11:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬

As we await our flight to Costa Rica, the weather is deteriorating from sunshine to rain. Despite my best intentions, I tend to worry about the possibilities—delays, turbulence, etc. I have been waiting for this special vacation all year, and I despise disappointment. Realizing I must accept whatever happens, I find comfort in knowing that rain is a blessing—without it, we could not survive. Trusting in God defines my Faith so whatever He brings, I will accept.
