"Do you take time to discover each day how beautiful your life can be?
How long has it been since you watched the sun set? The departing rays kissing
the clouds, trees, hills, and lowlands good night, sometimes tranquilly, sometimes
with exuberant bursts of color and form. What of the wonder of a cloudless night
when the Lord unveils the marvels of His heavens—the twinkling stars, the moonlight
rays—to ignite our imagination with His greatness and glory?...
...How captivating to watch a seed planted in fertile soil germinate, gather strength,
and send forth a tiny, seemingly insignificant sprout. Patiently it begins to grow and
develop its own character led by the genetic code the Lord has provided to guide its
development. With care it surely will become what it is destined to be: a lily, crowned
with grace and beauty; a fragrant spearmint plant; a peach; an avocado; or a beautiful
blossom with unique delicacy, hue, and fragrance.
impressive character, more promise of beauty until it becomes a majestic rose.
beautiful regardless of your circumstances. As you are grateful and obedient, you can
become all that God intends you to be."
