As we find ourselves in the middle of the summer, we sometimes get caught up in our own lives and forget the beauty which God has created for us. At Welsh Mountain Home we have recently created two gardens on the property. One garden produces vegetables that nourish our bodies, and the other garden is a quiet place to sit that helps us remember our loved ones that have passed.
Today as I read in my devotional, Jesus Calling, it reminded me of what beauty God has created before us that sometimes we pass by without even noticing. “Worship Me in the beauty of holiness. I created beauty to declare the existence of My holy Being. A magnificent rose, a hauntingly glorious sunset, oceanic splendor-all these things were meant to proclaim My Presence in the world. Most people rush past these proclamations without giving them a second thought. Some people use beauty, especially feminine loveliness, to sell their products. How precious are My children who are awed by nature’s beauty; this opens them up to My holy Presence.”
As we celebrate 90 years of serving others at Welsh Mountain Home, we are blessed by God, and we celebrate the whole earth as it is full of the Lord’s radiant beauty.
