The picture above is of the tree in our front yard after a recent snow storm. It reminded me that nature and each season has so much beauty. I find the soft, white freshness of snow especially pretty. I know not everyone feels the same way but I've always loved winter.
J.R. Miller realized that the natural world around is important to experience...
Beauties In Nature
"They miss many a tender joy who do not have a heart in sympathy with nature. They lose many a whisper of love that drops from God's lips who do not have ears open to hear the voices of nature. They fail to see many lovely visions of beauty who have not learned to use their eyes in admiring the exquisite things that God has scattered everywhere in such glorious variety.
Yet most of us walk amid these inspirations, these rare pictures, these sweet voices, and neither feel nor see nor hear them. God meant us to get comfort and joy from the lovely things with which He has filled our earth."
~from the book, Discovering the Hidden Essence of Beautiful Living, by J.R. Miller
