A mosaic of hanging star layers dangle colors and patterns of dancing light.

Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily;
your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Isaiah 58:8

Delightful vistas and sweet relaxation can breed a tenuous nostalgia.

Have you not seen that in our days
Of any whose story, song or art
Delights us, our sincerest praise
Means, when all’s said, ‘You break my heart?
~ C.S. Lewis

is always conscious of an inferiority,
from his not having seen what it is expected
a man should see.”

Nature trusts in God's goodness.

The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble, and He knows those who trust in Him. ~ Nahum 1:7

"When others behave badly to us, it should only stir us up the more heartily to give thanks unto the Lord, because He is good; and when we ourselves are conscious that we are far from being good, we should only the more reverently bless Him that He is good. We must never tolerate an instant's unbelief as to the goodness of the Lord; whatever else may be questioned, this is absolutely certain, that Jehovah is good; His dispensations may vary—but His nature is always the same" ~ C. H. Spurgeon

Let us do something to make the mountains glad.  ~ John Muir

For you shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall
break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
