๐ŸŒค๐Ÿ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ€ THE DIARY OF A NATURE LOVER ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒˆ

I was walking down to the junction of the street of our church. And I saw this grass or better put weed by the side of the road with these graceful flowers.

And I was like yeah, I have to write something on this.

Nature has been something of grace for me. It constantly reminds me of what it means to be totally cared for!.

It shows and depicts what it means to be totally dependent on God. Imagine these weeds with so many varieties of them, all sprouting out not because anyone deliberately planted them there. And though no one is responsible for their nurturing, yet they still grow with so much grace. And bud their flowers; which reflects their beauty.

How calm these are.
How relieving the beholding of these.
The sight of these depicts “Grace”.
A constant reminder of “don’t worry, you are well taken care of and you are of more importance than these, before Me”.
A constant reflection of God’s graceful and beautiful self.
A showcasing of God’s Imprint of “I can do all and fend for it all”.
A timely reminder that “God is on the throne, in care of all things and constantly making beautiful everything & everyone in His care”.

Oh my!, I love looking up and taking a deep breathe as I gaze upon these beauties and they are just a landmark of “God is able for me”.

What’s your reflection when you look at these beauties? ๐Ÿ˜˜

I don’t see grasses or mere plants or trees – I see GRACE ON DISPLAY! ๐Ÿค—

Do have a blessed weekend. ๐Ÿ’ƒ

My kind of future home view. ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜Š

๐ŸŒธ#HCCounsels#๐Ÿ€

P:S – Some of the pictures were taken with my phone – a few of such pictures that I have actually. And also about 3 were taken right in our compound. And 2 on a storey building somewhere in Ibadan. And the flower on a green book (my bible actually)๐Ÿ˜‚ pictures were those I took while on my way home from church. ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’•

Other pictures were gotten online – courtesy of Google. ๐Ÿค—

Finally, if you don’t know, I studied Botany (Plant Biology actually) still wonder why that course was what my beloved Alma Mata offered me (which I accepted and studied) even though I didn’t apply for it. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

Toodles!. ๐Ÿ’•

    Lovely. I love nature also. I see God’s creative beauty everywhere. If I could live anywhere, it would be off the grid surrounded by majestic nature, it’s one of the places I feel close to God.
