~ Beauty and Blessings ~

There are very few things more beautiful than a vibrant sunset.  The colors of nature are spectacular...  from the sunrise over the ocean to the color variations in each and every flower...  the creation is a reflection of the Creator.  Today's card reflect the two things that remind me of our Creator each and every day.  I am constantly reminded of His love and mercies at the close of each day.  And I am reminded of his care and provisions when I see a flower.
