For the Beauty of the Earth

Perry Park Country Club, Colorado

For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies:
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of praise.


Perry Park, west of Larkspur, Colorado

For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light:
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our joyful hymn of praise.


from our Sunday drive this past weekend

Beloved and I continue to find chinks of time here and there to drive to some of our favorite locations in Colorado before our move. (next week!!) 

We will find beauty in our new home state of Florida, to be sure, but quite different from the rarified atmosphere of the Rocky Mountain West.

These scenes were taken just west of Highway 105 in Perry Park, west of Larkspur, less than an hour's drive from our current home at The Brown Bungalow.

  1. I love that hymn, but was not aware of the words to the second verse...quite incredible and gives me a different perspective on those hours of the wee morning. Must remember this.

    Oh day trips to your favorite places in CO is excellent. Soak it up. Who knows if you will pass that way again anytime soon.

  2. You won't find breathtaking beauty like that in Florida. So beautiful.
