Winter: The Beauty of Nature
One morning last week, the temperature read -9 F. While waving to my husband as he left for work, I noticed the sun peeking through the trees and the snowflakes glittered like millions of diamonds falling gently from the sky.
I watched this display in silence and awe as the indescribable beauty of this cold morning touched my soul.
The world praises “mother nature,” but, there is only One Who deserves the credit, glory, and praise for this phenomenon. The beauty of nature on this earth reminds me daily of the God I serve.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which you have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
and the son of man that You visit him?
Heavenly Father, You have made everything there is, seen and unseen. “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible...” Colossians 1:16 Thank you for the beauty that surrounds us in the heavens and on earth. “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.” Psalm 19:1 “For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.” Romans 1:20. YOU are truly magnificent. Thank You!!! Amen.
