when gentle breezes blow


"And the LORD will be king over all the earth.  On that day the LORD will be one and his name one."


It seems that almost everyday, I grab my camera in pursuit of capturing the beauty of the nature around me.  And why not?  The flowers know their Maker.  Everyday they proclaim the work of His hands.  


People are beautiful in their own way.  They were created in God's image.  What could be more beautiful than that?  But there's something so innocent and delicate in a flower.  There is something in their stillness that is so captivating, so...reassuring.


I can't help feeling that we have turned from beautiful flowers to wilted weeds.  We have lost the ability to be still and listen, to be silent and hear.  We have forgotten what true beauty is, and we are afraid to show it.


One day, all will hear and know Him.  One day, all will be still and seek His face.  One day, all will bow and praise His name, just as the flowers bow when the gentle breezes blow.
