Gods beauty: Amaryllis in flower
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things noble, whatever things just, whatever things pure, whatever things lovely, whatever things of good report, if any virtue and if anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
These lovely flowers are from my garden and give such a lovely pink splash among the greenery.
THE BEAUTY OF GOD'S CREATION
I look around, and everywhere I can see,
The beauty of God's Creation smiling back at me.
A precious baby with velvety soft skin,
Wiggling its tiny hands and feet,
On its face an adorable grin.
First morning dew on a pink rose;
A beautiful butterfly drawing to it close.
The sun's golden rays gently warming the ground;
Luscious plants covering the soil abound.
Humming birds singing high up in the tree;
White sand glistening in the turquoise sea.
Snow capped mountains, so majestically high;
A colourful rainbow adorning the afternoon sky.
Countless stars above, sparkling oh so bright,
Decorating the horizon and illuminating the night
Thank you, Dear Lord, for giving me another day,
To enjoy the beauty of Your Creation,
And to worship You and pray.
