Have you taken time today to let the warm sun beat down on your face?
The cool breeze on your neck?
Thankfulness on your lips for all the Lord has created.
I sit here in my car on my lunch break looking at the barren trees, and the melting snow in wonder.
The blue skies above in awe!
Sounds of chirping birds fill the air… music like no other.
All of this beauty had the potential to be missed. Ignored or neglected.
With so much on our minds in a typical day, we miss this beauty that encloses us.
We miss out on the simplicity of this ever so short life.
Overwhelmed, overworked, stressed, and worn out we turn a blind eye to all of creation surrounding us.
If only we took a moment each day to quiet our minds and drink in this abundance.
Oh, how different our days would be.
Make time today and every day to be at peace in your soul!
