MOnday off

Monday, April 08, 2013

I have the day off today , so awoke at my usual time and was rewarded a couple hours later , with a beautiful peachy, pink sunrise in the background of leafless trees, making a stark contrast this morning. I make a point every morning to check out the sunrise(none in winter) and point it out to others who seem oblivious to HIS gift of beauty just for us. NO other planet in our solar system has this with a nice background.
When we are dying, we will wish we had taken the time to notice little and big things right in our face that HE created just for OUR enjoyment. Flowers, swirling little tornadoes of fall leaves, wispy clouds, squirrels playing, feuding birds in the spring, smell of composting earth when the sun hits it, ,,

It is my job to notice, to appreciate and pass on to others, things that are theirs for the taking to enjoy,,free of charge, compliments of God. Anybody else feel that way?

    I love this post! It is so easy to get wrapped up in our crazy lives, and not take the time to enjoy the little things. Our God gave us an amazing planet, and we should take time every day to admire His work, and praise Him. I am in awe everyday of the glories he has made!

    Oh yes. Thats the only thing I enjoy about my commute in the morning - the sunrise. No two days are ever the same. And I am always in awe over the beauty. Enjoy your day.
