I see trees of green, red roses too I see them bloom for me and you And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
I see skies of blue and clouds of white The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky Are also on the faces of people going by I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' "How do you do?" They're really saying "I love you"
I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow They'll learn much more than I'll ever know And I think to myself, what a wonderful world Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world
The photographic opportunities today brought to mind this song of my teenage years! Beauty is all around us ... and ... even in the heavy downpours ... there is something very attractive. No sooner had Eliot and I arrived in the rose gardens (without coat or umbrella) than the heavens opened! I managed to find some reasonably adequate shelter under a tree until the worst of it passed.
This was just after eight o'clock before many (other than the gardeners) had ventured out ... an hour or so later when we were leaving the car park had begun to fill up and lots of families clad in sensible rain wear started to arrive.
Meanwhile, the 365Project continues and I'm still adding a piece of fruit each day. A sweet juicy pineapple is today's offering ... very tasty indeed.
May we live by faith,
walk in hope and be renewed in love,
until the world reflects your glory
and you are all in all.
Even so, come Lord Jesus. Amen.
