The beauty of God's creation...

O heavenly Father, who hast filled the world with beauty: Open our eyes to behold thy gracious hand in all thy works; that, rejoicing in thy whole creation, we may learn to serve thee with gladness; for the sake of him through whom all things were made, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Above: (1) The laurel is in full and beautiful bloom, and (2) the lantana hasn't stopped flowering all winter.
