so today while driving (being driven) home from my youth group, i was feeling kinda gloomy as i have a very early morning tomorrow and am still not feeling on top of the world. my mood was changed however, when i glanced to the side out of the window and saw an absolutely stunning sight. a sky filled with clouds was streaked with gold and red while a lone tree remained black as it was shillouetted against the horizon.
it was amazing.
i was struck with how even in small and seemingly unimportant situations such as the setting of the sun. God can produce such amazing beauty that can make us want to stop and stare in wonder. i think that too often i let the world pass by in a blur as each event in my life blends into the next. i need to take more time to stop. let the world continue on it's merry way, and take some time.
time for me, God and the beautiful world he has placed me on.
let it not remain abandoned, taken for granted and unappreciated.
let it be respected, admired and looked upon with awe.
for God looked at it and he saw the it was very good
let us look, and glimpse but a fraction of the beauty he gifted us with when he first created our beautiful planet.
