This evening when we came home I looked up and saw this beautiful moon surrounded by clouds and I am reminded of all the beauty that has been placed on this earth and in the heavens for our enjoyment and wondered why?
It certainly wouldn’t have to be filled with the extensive number of colors, textures, flora and fauna that cover the earth. If the world contained any less of anything, would we have noticed or imagined it to be any less spectacular than we know it to be?

Great picture and challenging question! I think a key to happiness is to enjoy the world as it is and not to imagine how it could/should be better.

I with you on enjoying what the world is but I can’t help but marvel at God’s creation.

Good question. I would never have missed Zebras if they weren’t here . . . because I would never have imagined them on my own. But every time I see one, I marvel at the mystery.

I marvel daily at how everything is so interconnected and how one little change in one place can affect something else in another.

Beautiful shot, Jeanne. I’ve asked myself the same question many times. It never fails to amaze me how much beauty we have around us.

I love looking through the microscope as well as a telescope to explore all the world has to offer. My favorite of course is through the lens of a camera so I can capture and hold those shots I love so much.

What a gorgeous photo, Jeanne. The moon has a way of provoking these kinds of questions, doesn’t it.

When I am up flying and see everything from a different perspective I have even more questions. Are you still flying after your trapeze experience?? I think my questions about gravity would be less after falling from a trapeze or flying through the air.

This is a gorgeous photo, Jeanne…I’m always fascinated by nature too!

Thanks Wendy. I am always amazed at the variety of colors in the birds that visit my feeders, all the different greens in just the pine trees alone and then there are of course all the different flowers that grown here in the summer. All so different.

We haven’t seen it all yet. Imagine what New Jerusalem and the New Heaven and New Earth will look like. Gazing at the universe as we look toward the stars and all the beauty on the earth, it’s not a great stretch of the imagination to believe there is more to come compliments of our awesome Creator. Blessings to you, Jeanne…

“I can only imagine” as the song goes…There is so much I haven’t seen yet on this earth or from the skies that I can’t even fathom what there is to come. Blessings to you as well, Carol!

I also have a somewhat similar photo of the moon with a guava tree as a foreground but not as great as your photo though.
God’s craftmanship is really awe-inspiring!

I’d love to see your photo. I don’t know what a guava tree looks like. It would be fun to know. I agree that God’s craftmanship is awe-inspiring.
