Wonderful Wealth





‘Tis most surely
A glorious
Luxury
To be rich enough
To enjoy
Nature's beauty

© Janet Martin

‘The need and the suffering is so great here that they cannot see the beauty’
Words to a friend’s son who was in Ecuador last year and he commented on the breath-taking, inexpressible beauty of the mountainous landscape. He commented that, ‘at least they live in all this beauty’. To be rich enough to see and enjoy the beauty of creation is wealth, unspeakable wealth.
I often think of these words as I marvel at the gifts of nature and the awesome wonder of creation.
