I used to hate nature. It was there but there was nothing interesting or spectacular about it.
Today I love nature and its different landscapes. It is so serene. It doesn’t need batteries or man-made equipment to make it work. It doesn’t undergo technical difficulties. It’s simple yet profound. It doesn’t require me to do anything for it to function. I can sit back and watch it, admire it and appreciate it.
It’s like grace. I’ve learned to appreciate grace. For a long time I knew about it but didn’t want anything to do with it; thought I didn’t need it. Now I know I need God’s grace. I can watch grace work, I admire grace and most of all appreciate it.
These are a few pictures of Vermont from this past summer.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. (James 1:17, ESV)
