Thanks Be To the Lord







Oh, Lord thank you

For the picture you painted

Upon nature’s canvas last night

It gave me such peace and contentment

Another day had ended

And it was so appreciated

Lord not always

Do we take the time

To appreciate your artistic talent

But I’m in awe of what I see

Just in my little corner of the world

Everywhere I roam

There are contrasts and beauty abounds

Thank you Lord for the wonders you create

The colors upon your canvas just right

Blues, greens and flowers in rainbow hues

I’m in awe and I’m inspired

Thank you Lord

For making my world so much brighter

Even the birds all sing in praise

Enjoying nature every day

Thank you Lord

For making my days so much happier

For all this and so much more

Thank you Lord

Up, awesome, and beautiful Gypsy. When you slow down and take a good look how everything is created so perfect, you really can see that God was the creator. Everything is perfect and if it was off by an inch, life may not have came to be. The world is beautiful. Perfect meaning.

Thank you so much for your comment Rahul. I believe anyone who had faith in the Lord would have been inspired seeing the sight I saw - this is referring to my very first pic.

And all Gods children said.....Amen. I love the reminders that God is constantly putting before us to show us he is there, and he is majestic, and he is awesome. Reminders like the beauty of a sunset, and the peace of a sunrise, or the smile of a baby, and the song of a bird. His beauty is all around if we can slow down long enough to look and allow him to show us. Beautiful hub.
