"Those who dwell, as scientists or laymen, among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life." - Rachel Carson
It is always refreshing to see the beauty of nature, especially in the quiet of the early morning or evening. Though there are times when we may feel alone, or weary, if we take a few moments to stop and bask in the glory of creation, it can lift our thoughts to larger vistas and wider, more spacious horizons. A betrayal, confusion, sorrow, disappointment, conflict or fear can give way to peace and hope, when we remember that we are surrounded by glories that are not of our making - gifts that precede us, and which will endure after we are gone.
I thank God for the beauty of this earth and the universe!
