I did a song a few years ago titled “It’s not that easy being green,” I never paid any attention or thought to it. However, a few days ago I was driving at around 19.00 in the evening, the sun was setting and I drove by this beautiful park that I usually past by almost every day. As much as I am a person who loves nature and appreciate its beauty I never noticed how beautiful the nature of green can be. So this day I decided to give more attention to our natural God given surroundings of beautiful trees, plants, lush green valleys, its offerings and what we achieve from it and the beauty of it all.
I must tell you that “Greenery” has an unspoken language of its own. It has a life, a soul and a spirit. Apart from giving us oxygen and shade it provides us with an abundance of herbs, medicinal vegetation, forestry, and never fails to illuminate a bouquet of flowers. It also gives us a wide assortment to provide beauty and zest to our homes. There are no limits to texture and depth when it comes to Mother Nature, it provides us and protects us year round, and it is God’s gift to us – The Garden of Life.
To visualize an earth without greenery is like having life without water. It is one of the most important elements to human life which some of us take for granted. Hence, I am writing this blog about the importance of its acknowledgement.
There is a saying, Most of us pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that we hurry pass it. So the next time you drive or walk by a park try to take in the God given pleasure that was intentional. You may discover a new world a world of beauty and serenity.
As part of the song says, “It’s not that easy being green it seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things. And people tend to pass you over because you’re not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water or stars in the sky. But green’s the color of spring and green can be cool and friendly-like and green can be big like a mountain or important like a river or tall like a tree.”
Green is the colour.
As of today I have a whole new outlook when I say, I am green with envy…ha! ha! ha!
