Beauty


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
Folliott S. Pierpoint

Jill told me about a conversation she had with her son.  They were driving and saw the mountains in all their grandeur.  We have some spectacular mountains around here.  (Especially on the days when the sky is clear enough to see them.) Jill told me they wondered how anyone could deny that there is a God in the face of such beauty.

I have to agree with her.















...and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.
Alma 30:44

Is that fourth picture of Nevada mountains or is it just me?

I certainly do equate you with beauty but that's not a picture of you...it's a picture of mountains in Nevada.

It's not always about you Olivia.

That is one of my favorite scriptures. Beautiful pictures too. There is so much beauty in the world it's a little mind boggling.
