For the beauty of the Earth

I've been noticing lately just how lovely the earth all around us is. (Maybe its due to the fact that my camera is currently broken :( so I can't take pictures) But it just dawned on me the other day how many sunflowers there are in Utah. I know, I know-Derek tells me they have always been there, but I was driving down the freeway the other day and was amazed at how many there were-and everywhere! Made my traffic time a little more bearable and actually pleasant.
Have you see the sunsets lately?! From our old apartment you could not see anything but now we are higher up on the hill side and we often get to catch the sunsets on the way home. The other day it was "fruit punch" red, I had never seen it like that! Absolutely beautiful. I made Derek drive around the neighborhood to find the perfect viewing point.
And then yesterday just after the rain stopped I was staring at the majesty of the Wasatch Mountains. They tower over our home, and I see them everyday, but there was no smog and I felt like I had just walked out of an eye doctor with an updated contact prescription. They truly are beautiful and can't wait to see the colors change this fall! God truly blesses us each day with beauty and love all around!
Here's to hoping we all take a minute out of our day to take notice of this blessing and thank God for it.

What a great post. I love the sky too. It is my favorite thing in nature. I love that Heavenly Father created it for me.
