For the Beauty of the Earth

For the Beauty of the Earth

 

I’m not going to say that Fall is my favourite season, but I sooo love the beauty of the earth that I see around me at this time of year.

My worship pastor commented recently that he had been listening to a new worship song and was just really moved by the lyrics. It’s only after a couple of weeks of listening did he realize the words were from a Psalm!

King David was the original worship leader. So many of his psalms proclaim the beauty of God’s creation. He uses words like majestic and splendor.

I don’t get to travel too much so I am enjoying via social media access to pictures of friends who are currently travelling in Bolivia, Iceland and England.

And I am awestruck by the sheer diversity of numerous sources of splendour on the earth.

Here are a few snapshots from this week – from my neighbourhood to Iceland to England to Bolivia.
