A Poem For Thought

Thanks for The Beauty Lord

What you gave greatly adored
Its seen in your creation
Thanks for the beauty Lord

You gave flowers that are vastly colored
Giving sense of smell a sensation
What you gave greatly adored

For in the blue-sky birds soared
Giving sense of sight an admiration
Thanks for the beauty Lord

Nature walks where one explored
Giving senses much confrontation
What you gave greatly adored

The mountains of some unexplored
What a spectacular sight foundation
Thanks for the beauty Lord

The farmland that grows reward
Helping us fight against starvation
What you gave greatly adored

The ocean beached breaths deplored
Water touched, sand felt, great elation
Thanks for the beauty Lord

The rivers and creeks your voice roared
In all of nature you are seen in formation
What you gave greatly adored
Thanks for the beauty Lord

Thoughts: Life can move so fast that we forget to slow down and enjoy what God has given us in His thoughtfulness to our needs and enjoyment of nature, His creation. Looking at the simplicity of nature I realize its not so simple as I think of the complexity of how it all interacts and works to our need and enjoyment. God thought of us His human creation, created in His likeness and gave us dominance over all of beautiful nature; "Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps the earth" (Gen 1:26. NKJV). I am in awe at the beauty of nature that the Lord sacrificed His life for us to enjoy in knowing God.  Thanks for the beauty Lord!
