52 Blessings - Mother Earth

In the scriptures, Enoch recorded that he heard the earth mourn:

"And it came to pass that Enoch looked upon the earth; and he heard a voice from the bowels thereof, saying:  Wo, wo is me, the mother of men; I am pained, I am weary, because of the wickedness of my children.  When shall I rest and be cleansed from the filthiness which is gone forth out of me?  When will my Creator sanctify me, that I may rest, and righteousness for a season abide upon my face?"

"And when Enoch heard the earth mourn, he wept . . ."  (Moses 7:48-49)

That is one of the things I thought of as I watched this video that a friend shared on Facebook.  The other thing I thought of is what an amazing thing the Earth is and I don't want to make her cry.  And the last thing I thought of is why would anybody ever boast about who they are, the home they built, or on which side of the tracks they live?  Our accomplishments and brick and mortars are nothing comparatively and squatters rights anyplace on Earth is a blessing and a privilege.

I thought the lightening was great, and then the aurorae started. They are mesmerizing.

It reminds me of Karen Nyberg who just returned to Earth from the ISS. She posted amazing pictures on her pinterest boards.
