One of the nice things about summertime, especially in more northern climates, is the chance to get outside and enjoy the wonders of the creation around us. With all the tragedies that we are confronted on the news and in the media it is important to remember that all is not lost and certainly not as bleak as it might first appear. For all the troubles in the world - market fluctuations, government incompetence, riots, violence and famine - this world is still full of breathtaking beauty if one knows where to look. Included in this post is a picture I came across recently that reminded me of all these things without speaking a single word. I wanted to share it with you because it is good to remember that there is always more going on around us then is captured by the headlines and discussed by the experts of our day. There is a larger story unfolding before our eyes and those who recognize this are truly wise.
