Natural beauty

Today I did something different— I ate breakfast on the dining room table, all by myself. The room is beautiful in the morning— one side is open and through the glass I can see the birds flying and the squirrels scurrying around.


The sun is just peaking off the top of the neighbor’s house, and between the leaves of my trees, the shimmering light glistens through the window—what a breathtaking sight! It is mornings like this that I especially feel God’s presence. I think about all the natural beauty in this world and I am filled with awe. What a wonderful Creator He is!

Psalm 19:1-4 says,

“The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
The skies display his craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.
They speak without a sound or word;
their voice is never heard.
 Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,
and their words to all the world.”

Then I thought about this Scripture verse, “…ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God” (Rom 1:20).

How can somebody see all this beauty and not acknowledge God?
