The most beautiful things that I ever did see didn’t cost me a cent, for they are free. Every day as I walk, I see the tall, regal trees with limber limbs dressed in leaves. I see the colorful, lush flowers in yellows, browns, pinks, reds, oranges, lavenders, purple, all shades and tiny, matching blooms.
I smell their fragrances, both sharp and sweet and I hear the creatures that assail them.
I hear the birds… singing their cheerful tunes, sometimes chirping gossip in the afternoon.
I feel the soft winds brush my ear, to let me know that they are near. Whether it’s summer, spring, winter or fall, I enjoy the majesty of it all.
Then evening comes, bringing the most beautiful, magical vision of all with the great majestic setting sun. The sky so blue turns a darker hue, and slowly the presence of the universe appears; we can see the lights from a million stars, and the numerous planets that appear. The constellations form in their various patterns to give us the time of the year. These wondrous sights, and feels and sounds make us aware; a higher power is always there. It is that God Almighty is always near; they are the Most Beautiful Things.
