Today I see the pretty blue sky above the green trees. It is beautiful Lord. I see the bright colors of flowers and they are beautiful. Thank you for making the world have beauty to please my eyes.I see the wind blowing and feel it on my face. I see the butterflies flitting through the yard. I feel the sun warming the earth. And I feel the coolness of the clouds as they cover the sun. I hear the sounds of birds singing your praise and I remember to thank you Lord.I look into my family’s faces. I see their individualism and how precious they are. I rejoice in the variety you give us Lord. I hear music and enjoy the playing of instruments. I especially enjoy the piano. The beauty of it sometimes moves me to tears. Even small animals I share my house with and insects who frighten or annoy me bear the stamp of your intricate designs. Each has a place here on this earth.I know there is sin and there is a downfall of man’s morals. People get hurt and they die. There is destruction. There are disasters. But there is another place. A place that you have made for us.This new place is a home for us without the destruction of this earth. It is a place where we won’t have sickness or broken bodies. It is a place without tears or sorrows. It is a place we trust to come in the future. It is a place of rest and beauty where we will be with the God we trust in now.I trust in you today God. I feel the peace you give me as I gaze on the beauty you provided here. And I trust in you for the place coming soon where the beauty is even greater.2 Corinthians 5:7 It’s what we trust in but don’t yet see that keeps us going.
