All Things Bright and Beautiful #WordlessWednesday



Last week, I was outside with my family, just appreciating the freedom we have to spend time together and play outside. The thing I love most about summertime, is being able to enjoy the beauty and splendor of some of God's amazing creations. I certainly love flowers and gardening, and do my best to plant a variety of colorful beauties to enjoy all summer long. From coneflower and zinnias to snap dragons (B's favorite flowers!) and phlox. I love having flowers on hand that attract bees, birds, and butterflies.

As I snapped a few photos of recent blooms around the garden, I was reminded of a favorite hymn, and thought I would leave you with the words, to ponder in your heart today.


All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flow’r that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.


The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.



He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

Praying that you will take some time to appreciate all things bright and beautiful! 
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
