QUIET BEAUTY

The earth is an amazing place and quite diverse in its features. And there is always quiet beauty to be found.  Spring, here in the Central Valley of California, is filled with blossoms and flowers.  The abundant rainfall we experienced this season has made the surrounding hills alive with wild flowers.  There is colorful beauty all around us.  My back yard is no exception.

When I walk in my garden I find peaceful contentment.  The fragrance of the flowers and their varied colors work into my soul and cause me to relax.  I often feel closer to God.  It dawned on me that I’m actually experiencing God’s nature in the midst of his creation.  He made all of these wonderful things that I’m enjoying.  In the very nature of God there must be quiet beauty.

Zephaniah 3:17  “The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save.  He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”
