Beauty in our World

 
 
 
 
 
Just yesterday as I was driving in my neighborhood I was thinking of all the beautiful
pictures I see on pinterest, other blogs, and Facebook.
It struck me as I passed through the neighborhood that I am surrounded by beauty.
So I thought I would share a few pictures from my part of the world.
As I was driving and thinking I saw a bumper sticker that said eARTh
and I realized that our world is God's palette.
Sometimes people destroy it and injure it,
but when left to God's hand beauty can return.
The color is often green with splashes of the rainbow.
EartH is beautiful!
Let's treasure it, care for it, and treat it as a gift from God.

Amen Marilyn, and thank-you for sharing the beauty in your part of the world. We miss so much when we don't open our eyes to what is right in front of us, don't we?

Angela McRae said...

Yes, indeed! So glad you take time to stop and smell the roses ... and share them with all of us!

Beautifully stated Marilyn. I've seen some pretty sparse landscapes recently, no color at all but still spectacular in its own way, just God's neutral palette at work.

The flowers are lovely and I'm looking forward to exploring your neighborhood soon!

Meanwhile on Sat. my favorite farmers from the Walk Ahead Farms are bringing their fresh cut flowers to SuzAnna's and you just know I'll be there.......and Jasmin will be working there too so I think it will be a fun visit.

Hugs - Mary

Hurt not the eARTh, neither the sea, nor the trees...

Oh, yes - so much beauty! Love the cottage garden (although our own "cottage garden" beside the canal is a bit unruly and out-of-control. Must remedy that, but busy slaying photo-snatching company dragons. Hope you and Jim are enjoying some lovely weather - and the beauty all around.

Beauty in the earth and in this wonderful post! Indeed -- we are surrounded!

May you enjoy a most beautiful weekend, too! I know we all benefit because we see your pretty photos right here!

You live in a lovely neighbourhood, Marilyn. Thank you for sharing it with us. It's a wonderful time of the year when there are so many flowers to enjoy near home. We count our blessings and endeavour to take care of our little corner of the world. Happy weekend, dear friend!
