For the Beauty of the Earth

On this beautiful Memorial Day, we decided to take a family trip up to Heber Valley and walk around the Cascade Springs. It is a beautiful area. If you live in Utah, or ever have a chance to visit, I recommend taking some time to visit this natural beauty. While walking around and taking photos of the scenery and the kids, I couldn’t help but think of the words to For The Beauty of the Earth by Folliott Pierpoint. 
 
For the Beauty of the Earth
For the Beauty of the Skies
 
For the Love which from our Birth
Over and Around us lies. 
 
For the Beauty of Each Hour
Of the Day and of the Night
 
Hill and Vale, and Tree and Flow’r
Sun and Moon, and stars of light
 
For the Joy of Human Love
Brother, Sister, Parent, Child
 
Friends on Earth, and Friends Above
For all Gentle Thoughts and Mild
 
I hope on this Memorial Day, you’ve taken a little time out to spend with your families. They are the reason men and women fight for our country, to protect our homes, families, and freedoms. To them I say Thank You – from the bottom of my heart, you are appreciated and not forgotten.

  1. What a beautiful hike! I actually want to go on a hike this week…we have a mountain in GA called Stone Mountain with a wonderful trail and the best mountain top view in the state! Thanks for the extra motivation.
