Admiring God's Creation

Admiring God's Creation

I am a lover of nature. I love watching God's beautiful creation & find it awesome, amazing, inspiring & refreshing. The very thought of it brings peace & serenity to my very being & I could use a lot many more adjectives to describe the beauty of nature - the wonderful creation of God.

Every morning I stand by my window & admire the clear sky, the birds flying about, the squirrels climbing up the bark of the trees & the trees swaying in the breeze. The chirping sound of birds & the bright sunshine cheers my spirit. Often I see birds flying to & fro busy working at their nests, carrying small sticks & twigs in their tiny beaks. They seem so happy & carefree. I am sure God intended for us to live happy & carefree lives & enjoy His creation. But somewhere down the line we have busied our self with our work trying to keep pace with the ever increasing demands of the world. I feel a great sense of peace & calm when I look at the sky in the night & marvel at the bright moon & the countless stars twinkling in the sky.

I also enjoy going to the beach. It is so relaxing to watch the water form little ripples & also the huge waves lashing against the shores during high tides. As I walk along the beach I pick up beautiful shells & periwinkles of different shapes & shades. At Velankanni, I was attracted to the beach & walked on the sand picking shells one better than the other. Since the tide was low I was drawn further into the sea when I found my feet sinking into the sand & noticed a signboard that warned people not to venture into the sand at low tide as many people had been sucked into these treacherous sinking sands & lost their lives. So I hurriedly returned towards the beach. I now looked at my beautiful collection of shells & realised that God had the best collection of shells scattered on all the beaches around the world.

The beautiful horizon is a marvellous sight. I have no words to describe its real beauty. As I watch the setting sun, I always make a wish.My mother told me when I was a little girl, any wish made when the sun sets is fulfilled. The little fish in the ponds, the crabs in the crevices of the rocks, the boats & trawlers dropping their nets into the sea to catch fish, the lighthouse some distance away are scenes I cherish. I sincerely wish I could spend some more time with nature.

On my trips normally in India itself, I enjoy nature. It is the only time we can relax from our busy schedules & become one with nature. The beautiful gardens in Bangalore, Mysore, Ooty, Kodaikanal are worth seeing. The variety of flowers, the rose gardens & plants are awesome. The waterfalls, hills & valleys, the greenery is so refreshing. The scenic beauty of Goa, Kerala & all the coastal areas in India is mind-blowing. Taking morning walks, walking along the shores & forest areas & cruising down the lakes is exhilarating. Nature is certainly the source of solace, inspiration & adventure.

I love the natural beauty of Kashmir. It is like heaven on earth. I was fascinated by the stretches of valleys & mountains. I had a beautiful ride in the shikara which went skimming over the green transparent waters of the Dal lake. The snow capped mountains reflected in the water & the fish could be seen like one could stretch out their hands & almost touch them. I also saw the floating gardens where flowers, fruits & vegetables were grown. I took a bus ride to various points & finally arrived at the foot of the snow capped mountains where I was tempted to take a sleigh ride on the slope of the mountain. I was made to walk up as far as I could walk & then came down in the sleigh with a terrifying speed - the cold air & snow blowing against my face. I stepped out & was glad to be on terrafir-ma.

I also enjoyed the scenic beauty of the Himalayas. It is truly enchanting. The snow capped mountains & the Fir trees growing there is a beautiful sight. Nainital is blessed with natural resources. The beauty of the sparkling lakes, mountain ravines & valleys & the sunrise & sunset over the mountains is such a delight. Also the beautiful falls, green hills & snow ranges of Missouri overwhelmed me. I experienced snowfall there.

I have been for several safaris in the forests where I saw lions, tigers,bears,deers & many other animals at close range. It was adventurous.

As I share my experience with you, I feel so good & refreshed & very happy. Advanced technology, a growing competitive world, our desire to reach the height of success,our obsession for wealth & our great desire to amass riches is keeping us so busy that we have little or no time to admire nature. God's creation is so wonderful & I am sure you will agree that we must spend time enjoying it.

Your expression in the entire write up was amazing - a perfect reflection of what you felt - "so good & refreshed & very happy"

I've a suggestion, why don't you add some pictures from your travels across the India, and add description to those pictures too? They would make great hubs, and I'll enjoy (I think others will too) seeing India from your perspective. :)

I was reminded of my trip to the mighty Himalayas and its vastness and grandeur, which made me feel as if I was a new born baby in its lap, helpless but still secure.

I can identify with the thoughts you expressed here. Truly God has revealed himself to us in the things he made. When I see the sky or the trees or the ocean, I cannot help but think of his greatness. I agree with anusha that some pictures of what you saw would be most welcome. I hope you will add some. Voted up and beautiful.
