God's Beauty

"God saw all that He had made and it was very good."  Genesis 1:3

"The Heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands." Psalm 29:1

I am a beach girl all the way!  There is absolutely nothing like the smell of the ocean, the sound of waves crashing, the feel of sand between your toes, or the peace that you feel around the beach.  It is amazing!  Every time I go to the beach I just feel God's presence.  I mean, how could you not in all of the beautiful nature of the beach?  And have you ever watched a sunrise or sunset over the ocean?  All I can say is wow!

However, I live in Kansas.  Quite a long way from the beach.  So how can I admire all of God's beauty so far from my beloved beach?  Well I can because His beauty is everywhere!  Just look out of your window.  There are so many different kinds of colorful and beautiful flowers.  The trees that changes with each season.  The beautiful rain that waters our earth.  The sun shining through the clouds.  Or the smile of a child.  God's beauty is all around us.  Sometimes it is right there in plain site and we praise God for His creations.  But sometimes our view becomes clouded with our problems and tempers that we don't see it.  

This weekend, take a moment (or more) to stop and admire the glorious nature God blessed us with.  All of creation is His gift to us.  Praise Him for His 'sweet blessings.'
