Nature's Beauties

dear God,

i thank You for these beauties that i see.
they sure reflect your love and goodness to me.

i thank You because, in them i feel
the deepest joy and it is real.

i am amazed at the beauty that surrounds
thinking that You are just always around.

let me be enlightened by the truth,
that with you, i must only trust and root.


Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into.
~Henry Beecher

I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
~Emma Goldman

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
~Iris Murdoch

A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.
~Walt Whitman

'Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom,
maybe your soul has never been in bloom.

~Audra Foveo

Have you ever seen a flower down
Sometimes angels skip around
And in their blissful state of glee
Bump into a daisy or sweet pea.
~Jessi Lane Adams

Be like the flower, turn your faces to the sun.
~Kahlil Gibran

When words escape, flowers speak.
~Bruce W. Currie

The best rose-bush after all, is not that which has the fewest thorns,
but that which bears the finest roses.
~Henry Van Dyke

God loved the flowers and invented soil.
Man loved the flowers and invented vases.

~Jacques Deval

Just living is not enough...
One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.
~Hans Christian Andersen

Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.
~Lydia M. Child

Nota Bene: Special thanks goes to the hubby for taking macro shots
of these beautiful flowers in our neighborhood.

Beautiful! I miss the flora and fauna. We have nice beaches here but I definitely miss the flowers and trees there. =)

Sheng, your opening prayer is so beautiful it made me teary! Then the GORGEOUS photo's of flowers with quotes, and to find out that your huz took the pics just blew me away! He's as talented as you my dear- thanks for sharing these beauties. Are you going to frame some of the pics? Which is your favorite? I love the 7th one down. I'm not sure what its called but it's pretty PINK, so gorgeous, it doesn't even look real. I love how the background is out of focus and the flower is the main attraction! Nice!
