Not Missing the Best by Looking Too Hard



I sit in the van waiting for my daughter to get out of school. The temperatures have been cooler in my corner of the world lately, a perfect 72 degrees this afternoon. The sun is shining, a slight breeze blowing and I am thankful for this little delay in my day. I put the window down, prop a leg on the door, lean my head back on the seat and breathe deeply.

Aaah.

I rack my brain trying to come up with a good analogy to my spiritual life (something good for the blog, you know) and it occurs to me the moment itself is enough. I am thankful for the gift of a beautiful day and a brief break to soak in its splendor.

Thank You, Lord. Your beauty soothes my spirit.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.

Psalm 19:1-2

This is SO simple and SO true! I was reading some weight loss tips the other day (go figure!) that said if you're so busy wanting the NEXT bite, then you're not enjoying the food currently in your mouth as much as you could be. A good lesson for all of life! Thanks!!
