“O LORD, I will honor and praise Your Name, for you are My God. You do such wonderful things! You planned them long ago, and now You have accomplished them.” – Isaiah 25:1 NLT (http://bible.com/116/isa.25.1.NLT)
We live in such a beautiful world! God gave us the earth for us to live our natural lives, yet we often don’t take the time to open our eyes and enjoy it. I know how blessed I have been to live in small towns and smallish cities, and for the travel I’ve been able to do. I confess that all I know of big city life is what I see on the TV and in the movies, and for the most part it doesn’t seem all that pleasant for the less than wealthy people. I’ve read that inner city kids can grow up without ever seeing a cow, and the most they see of nature is a random tree or potted plant. It’s almost incomprehensible to me that people have to live that way. To miss out on so much beauty….
How thankful are you for where you are; where you’ve been; who you are?
