When you see your newborn child. That child is a gift from God. When it rains and flowers and plants grew. That is God's gift to all of us. When you look up at the sky. You see the beauty of the sky. How blue the sky is. You see the birds flying up high in the sky. Look around you and you hear the laughter of children and animals playing with the children. The beauty of the world around you is the gift that God gave to all of us. The mountains, the skies and the oceans are all gifts from God. So we should all enjoy the beauty of the world around us.

Sometimes we just move too fast and fail to appreciate all that God has given to us.

It's far too easy to focus on negative things going on. Instead, the beauty and wonderful gifts are everywhere, if that's where we choose to look.

Sometimes people do not take the time to enjoy nature that is around them.

I try to remember to thank God for all the beauty that he created for us, how anyone who looks about them can doubt his existence is beyond me.

In today's world of electronics, video games, computes and technology, we sometimes lose sight of all the beauty of the world that is around us. We need to take a break from the man-made world and focus more attention on the God-made world!

Yes we should definitely enjoy the beauty of the world around us, but now days everyone is so busy in their own lives that they fail to pay attention to see the gifts of god. God has created the beautiful nature for us, he created the mountains, oceans, sea , skies , rivers and much more. When we enjoy a beauty we should remember that it is the God who has created it. He is the Creator.
