The Natural Beauty of Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone is full of natural beauty with the green landscape filled with palm trees and other vegetation. The sky is always a true sky blue filled with the bright yellow sun unless a rain storm is coming. The rain clouds develop quickly, release the rain for a half hour, and then disappear as fast as they came. The soil is a rich brown color that contrasts with the green plant life. The coast has a white sand beach with the deep blue ocean crashing upon the shoreline. There are gray mountains that stand tall in the distance. The entire country is absolutely beautiful. The sunsets are glorious every single night with red, pink, orange, yellow and purple filling the sky. It is as if God is saying every night, “Here I am, I have not forgotten this country.” Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” (NIV).
