Life as Nature IV

Like an image from a distant world or a computer-generated landscape from the latest special effects movie, this photograph stands apart as too wondrous to be real. Its majesty is overpowering, its natural beauty simply takes your breath away. I'm sure that when God forsaw how this little portion of his Earth would develop in time, he was well pleased. However, if you think about it, there is limitless beauty in our world, and it surrounds us on all sides. It is always there, and always around the next corner. However, unlike these beautiful geysers, sometimes for beauty to emerge, we must plant some seeds, and then watch over them with love and care to allow them to grow and develop. Whether this is striking up a conversation with a stranger, making yourself available for your friends, putting in that extra effort to get the job done right, or giving of your time, energy, or money, seeds can be sown everywhere around our world.
