His Colors



I am reading through my last year's journal and came upon this entry that once again spoke to my heart.  

You take for granted the beautiful, rich, vibrant colors of the autumn trees because you have seen them year after year for so many years. But think of the miracle that you are looking at! How can a green leaf on a tree actually turn a totally different color around the same time every year?  Not all trees turn the same color! There is an infinite variety of fall colors that I have created. You are viewing one of My gifts of beauty that reflects the beauty of who I AM.  Enjoy the colors because I created these just for your pleasure and delight. And to give you another way to know Me more. Never take Me or My Beauty for granted.  Romans 1:20 NLT Though everything God made, you can clearly see His invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature (in nature!). So no one has an excuse for not knowing God.  Here's another version:
The basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can't see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. So nobody has a good excuse. The Message

                           Enjoy God's glorious colors on display for us to see and delight in today!
