Not A Painting

Camel Thorn Trees, Namibia Photograph by Frans Lanting, National Geographic

I was astounded when I realized that this picture was of a real place. The orange back ground is actually a very tall sand dune. There is nothing more spectacular than the beautiful world that we live in. Almost every time I go outside I get a little pang of gratitude in my heart for the wonders of nature. That is one of the many reasons that I know God is real and that he loves us. If there is no God then who is it that I want to thank so badly when I see things like this?
