Morning Walk

How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. Psalm 104: 24

As I walked through the woods and by the pond this morning, I was once again reminded that the wonder of God's creation surrounds us everywhere, and that we can find extraordinary beauty in the midst of our ordinary days. The simplest things are often those which are the most beautiful! I marveled at the reflection of the sky mirrored in the pond and again in a creek bed sprinkled with colorful leaves, a pure white flower peeking out from among spindly stalked weeds, the precise aerial and landing skills of Canadian geese, and how the brilliance of golden leaves illuminates the woods even when the sun isn't shining. Just ordinary things we don't often think about, yet extraordinarily beautiful; beauty only seen when we choose to slow down and soak up the wonders of God's amazing world.
