Beautiful primarily reminds me of God’s creation. I see it in the tree outside my window every morning, and sometimes in the birds as they fly by to land on the bird feeder. I see beauty in the St. Johns River near my home where I go to see the sunset or to run or to think or to pray. The trees with the moss hanging remind me of my childhood and great oaks aligning my grandmothers driveway where the memories are abundant as the growing trees. Beautiful is the ocean, its waves and colors and smells, that is a bit farther from me. Farther still are the mountains that have always been a place to capture my attention whether looking up at them or looking down off of them, they have always led me to an awe of what God has done in His world. So from nearby to far away, there are beautiful places in our world that capture my senses and ease my mind.
