i have lived in atlanta my whole life and just now visited the botanical gardens for the first time. the weather was perfect and the gardens were beautiful. my sister julie, her boyfriends' mom [mrs.bachtler], and lamar joined me and i couldn't have asked for a more perfect afternoon. aren't the flowers pretty? something mrs.bachtler said that has really stayed on my mind:
"how can anyone not believe in God when there is something so beautiful as this?"
i pray that more people notice the everyday beauty around them and realize it is all from Him. How much He must love us to create such beautiful things.
He loves us. Oh, how He loves us.
