Whenever I see gorgeous autumn color or a spectacular display of flowers or a rich sunset I almost always think how much our Heavenly Father loves us to have given us such a beautiful place in which to live. My mother once told me that sometimes when she sees a beautiful scene she just says, "Thank you" as a little tiny prayer to Heavenly Father.
Communing with nature is such a powerful way of connecting with the divine. Prayer and meditation are often best enjoyed in a quiet, majestic, natural place. What a beautiful world we have--our hearts should be full of gratitude for the beauty of this place.
