Last Saturday, while talking a walk with Diane, I commented on how I thought that this was the most beautiful fall we have enjoyed since we moved to northeast Wisconsin eleven years ago. Her take? “They’ve all been that way, you just haven’t noticed.” Hmm…
Looking back, I can see how often I have become so intensely focused on the task at hand that I have walked right by these works of God. I have probably walked by a lot of other important things.
Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” He is the same God “who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment” (I Timothy 6:17).
How much do we notice? How much have we missed? My prayer is that we will do a better job at pausing, contemplating all that God is showing us about himself, and then praising him!
