For the beauty of the earth, For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth Over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise This our hymn of grateful praise.
After a mighty rainstorm Friday evening, we looked out to notice a rainbow. As we walked outside to a freshly cleansed yard and got a better look, we seriously watched as the partial rainbow became an absolutely gorgeous full one. The colors were brilliant, with the sun shining through the clouds, just above the beautiful green leaf-filled trees, with our amazing American flag sitting motionless in the mix, the sight was enough to leave me speechless, and in awe of the beauty our Heavenly Father has given us. It's these little moments that last but a few minutes, that make me realize how precious life is, and how truly blessed we are. To me it was like a little smile from my Heavenly Father gently, but with great force, reminding me how much he loves me, and all his children.
Think of All the beauty still left around you and be happy.
