Beauty, peace and harmony in nature

By Billy Joe Fudge

There is so much beauty, peace and harmony in nature. The major contributing factors to depression, confusion, frustration, discontent and loathing are;

  • (1) an inordinate desire to live in the past,
  • (2) a paralyzing fear of the future and
  • (3) the lack of wisdom to appreciate the present.

  • Only mankind cowers before tomorrow and laments the loss of yesterday while not being content with today.

    What does that have to do with nature, you might ask?

    Eternity is found in nature because tomorrow and yesterday are absorbed into today.

    Today is omnipresent and can be clearly seen in nature.

    Jesus said, "do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself".

    Paul said, "since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities -- his eternal power and divine nature -- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made (nature), so that people are without excuse."
