Beauty All Around You

Beauty All Around You by Joan Cook

"God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, " Hebrews 1:1-3

Sitting in my brown comfy chair this morning, my feet propped up on my ottoman I was drinking my first cup of coffee when I noticed several wild turkey in my back yard.  Perfect specimens of male and females, like they were pictures in a book, gobbling and eating birdseed that had fallen to the ground from the bird feeders.  

I looked in my side yard and saw a family of deer grazing on grass and walking cautiously, yet so graceful.

I picked up my Bible and began to read the book of Hebrews and this scripture caught my attention.  "He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature and upholds all things by the word of His power."  Wow!

As I thought about how beautiful our world is, I couldn't help but think random thoughts of some of my favorite things: the white sand, blue ocean, green trees; the beauty and fragrance of flowers, the coolness of the wind and the warmth of the sun; the twinkling stars, fluffy clouds, the majesty of the mountains...I could go on and on.

There are so many things I love and so much beauty in our world!  As I read this passage I couldn't help but think how God created all of this for us to enjoy.  What a good God to even be mindful of us, much less create such a beautiful place for us to live our life on earth.  Creation resembles it's creator!  God must have some kind of an imagination to dream up all of this, then speak it into existence.

Glory and honor and majesty be unto you, O Lord!

I hope you enjoy your day and are reminded of the beauty that is all around you. In the midst of your circumstances, God's beauty is screaming out to us every where we look saying, HE IS ALIVE AND HE CARES FOR ME!
