Why has Lauren Daigle’s song, You Say, topped the Billboard Christian charts for 62 weeks? Does God really think you are beautiful?
Drooping. Lifeless. Abandoned. Destined for the trash. Appropriate word choices for the plant sitting on the bargain rack of our local home improvement garden section. But you wouldn’t describe these flowering petunias with those same words, would you? Yet that pathetic description fit this hanging plant perfectly when I bought it a couple of weeks ago. Could it bloom again? Would it form soft, lilac petals again on its tired, worn stems?
You can’t avoid it. Everywhere you look, you’ll see evidences of God’s creativity. Today, in my last blog on Finding God in the Outdoors, here are only a few highlights of what I’ve found and seen of God’s amazing genius at work in creation.

I’ve often heard that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. I discovered that firsthand on a recent walk through our neighborhood. As my husband and I rounded the corner of a nearby street, I noticed something sitting by the curbside of a home. I immediately saw beauty – garden art–in what someone else had designated as a discard for garbage pickup.
