Enjoy Beauty

Take time to enjoy the wonder of the sunrise
and the beauty in the sunset.

As you watch the morning’s mist rise
from the hills and meadows

Stop and allow the experience of my creation
to sink deeply into your mind.

I want you to enjoy my love and the beauty I create.
With your mind at peace I promise to help you.
Trust in Me and have faith.
Believe in Me with all your heart and being.

Genesis 1:11, 12 (NIV) Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seeds in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so….And God saw it was good.”

How many of you imagine the beautiful garden of Eden – a perfect garden in which God put the first man and woman? I wonder how many of us take the time each day to really soak in the beauty of our surroundings.

As we traveled up the highway, I noted the beautiful palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze, the coral flowers on the hibiscus bushes alongside a resort and here and there beautiful purple and pink Bougainvillea. Even the sea grapes with orange, red and green leaves were striking and attractive.

Or, I think of my native Ontario in springtime with the purple and white lilac bushes close by homes with cherry and apple blossoms spreading their fragrance through the air. Truly there is so much beauty in the world God created it would take a lifetime to explore all the delights which refresh our hearts and minds!
