What a Wonderful World

I see trees of green, red roses, too,
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

You can probably hear ole Louis singing that right now.   There are so many things in this world that are beautiful.

I took the picture below today that makes me wish to be an ant for a few minutes so I could crawl through this fresh patch of Spring.  It looks so happy.

???????????????????????

The next part of the song talks about my favorite:

???????????????????????

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

I love a beautiful blue sky full of white clouds.  God truly made this world beautiful.  He made so many amazing things that make us stop in awe.  He works in this world and all you really have to do to see Him is look.

But no matter how much beauty this world may have…

I know this isn’t THE wonderful world.  I know this place is not my home.  I must remember this especially when some of the things of this world aggravate me or make me sad.   When devastating things happen in this world, I am so thankful that God has a more beautiful, more WONDERFUL world ready for me.

Today, a beautiful family lost their young boy to an accident.  I’ve cried and prayed all afternoon for my sweet friends.  I can only imagine what or how they feel.  To lose a child has got to be the worse pain to bear in this world.  It’s hard to be happy for him, even though we know he is in the best WONDERFUL world, when the pain is so hard here in this wonderful world.  Our grief, what ifs and other questions cannot allow us to be at peace with the fact that God has got him.  He’s with Jesus.  Wow.

GOD is waiting in the real WONDERFUL world for us.  Our pain will one day go away.  This life is but a vapor and by believing in HIM, we will be reunited with Him, our sweet babies, parents, grandparents, friends and all those we have lost from this world one day.

And on that day… we will all be singing together…

What a Wonderful World!

(I believe the words will be somewhat different than Mr. Armstrong’s rendition, though.)
