Praise Post # 22

Today I am feeling nostalgic for road trips we've taken over the years.  I'm praising God for the beauties He created in nature:
  1. Beautiful sunrises to start the day.
  2. Lovely lakes to relax by
  3. Fragrant colorful flowers to brighten the landscape
  4. Towering trees to shade us
  5. Gorgeous sunsets to cap off the day.

He didn't have to make our world so wonderful - but He did! He could have made just one flower or maybe a dozen different kinds - but He made thousands of species of flowers. He paints the skies with new colors every day, just for you. The landscapes could have been made in shades of sepia but instead He infused it with rich colors.

Being out of doors at the end of the day is almost sacred, like being in church.  The beauty makes me think of Him and I'm grateful for the world He created.

Now it's your turn. What blessings can you count today? Leave a comment and share, or if you have a blog, consider linking up below. Praise Posts are running through the month of November. We are thanking God for 5 blessings each day to total 150 praises. You don't have to elaborate, just list if you want. Jump in right where you are whether it's Day 22 or Day 29. I'd love for you participate!

    That was a pretty sky picture! I am so glad that God chose to make the world completely beautiful indeed! Today is Take a Ride Day, so maybe that's why you are nostalgic about your previous car trip adventures :)

    I love your list today, Jerralea. He has indeed given us much beauty to enjoy!

    I do understand how you feel about being outside at the end of the day. We were out last night and when we arrived home it was dark. I looked up at the sky that was filled with beautiful stars! It nearly took my breath away.

    What a pretty picture!! That would make such a gorgeous postcard :) I love all the things on your list today, too!! My favorite time outdoors is the early in the burbs, in the city, in a small new england village, on the Gordon College campus, in the woods, by a lake, on the ocean, or in the mountains....I just love early mornings in nature...God does marvelous work!!

    I do love the beauty of God's creation. I love sunsets and sunrises and full moons not to mention the ocean and mountains and trees and flowers. All a gift from Him.

    Yes, He is the most amazing artist there ever was! He loved us so much that He wanted our earth to be a nice place. Can you even begin to imagine what Heaven will be like!?
