Good Day Friends; Today we would like to remind everyone that there is a wonderful world of sights, sounds and smells around us that we may take for granted. Our busy lives may not allow us to "stop and smell the roses" as often as we might like. However, God has created the natural wonders and beauty for us all to enjoy and to be a part of. Perhaps Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best in his short poem. Let me share it with you:

"For blue of stream and blue of sky, For pleasant shade of branches high, For fragrant air and cooling breeze, For beauty of the blooming trees, Father in Heaven, we thank Thee."

Take a moment daily to stop, look and enjoy the wonders of nature that God has provided. It's calming effect will make you a better person and the daily stresses of life will not seem quite as important. May God Bless.
