We go through life each day with all our errands to run, places to go, people to see. We rush from one destination to another barely giving a thought to our surroundings. We don’t stop to look around or take a breath and just be still for a minute to notice the view. The last few days I have purposefully tried to pay more attention to my surroundings, I made it a point to watch the sky around sunset time and you know what? It is breathtaking and so different every night.
Last evening as we were driving home, the white clouds had formed what looked like a cross in the sky with the orange glow of the sun setting in the background. It was glorious; we pulled over into the park to try and get a better view and to take a picture. I noticed another lady had gotten out of her car and was taking a picture with her i-pad. We weren’t the only ones mesmerized by it. And it went away so quickly, after the sunset it was as if it had never been there. If we were not looking around and paying attention we would have missed it.
Tonight as we were driving to the store, there it was yet another beautiful sunset to light our path. The picture of this one is above. It was magical the way the colors blended; the clouds looked like pillows in different shapes floating on a blue canvas. God’s creations are so amazing, we just have to look around, look up, look down, his creations are plentiful. From the beautiful vision of bluebonnets as they blanket an empty field in early spring to the beauty of a tiny lady bug making its way slowly across the back porch. Isn’t it all amazing.
He created it all and there are so many of his creations that I may never lay my eyes upon in faraway lands but they are still there none the less. All created by the master artist himself. Take some time to slow down and notice God’s creations today wherever you are.
