This morning I’m remembering~
Walking through the forest after a spring snow had dressed the scene, i so enjoy the sounds permeating the atmosphere. . . the silence punctuated by the crunch of my boots on the crusty snow, the bird songs of joy, a cracking of a branch moving in the breeze. As my lungs inhale clean pure air, my heart drinks in the refreshing spirit of God’s beauty. The magnificence of His marvelous creation for us lifts my soul in words of thanksgiving. You are so good Lord, my God! You created this earth for us to enjoy. Do you get out and enjoy the glorious presents our Creator designed for our enjoyment?
As the trail comes to a clearing my eyes behold God's loving hand in all the wonders of this world. In the meadow walks a regal stag, head alert sniffing the air. Beyond him, standing in majesty, a mountain high and lifted up, covered with a dressing of pristine white snow reflects the rising sun’s glory, a small sample of the Son’s dazzling splendor. It fills my soul as I stand in awe. You, fill my soul Lord. This creation of Yours so inspires my being, that I can’t move; it’s as though Your heavenly light shines upon me, pinning me breathless to the spot. Little did I know, Lord, this morning would become an intertwining of my heart with Yours. As the sun moved on, the mountain settled down into it’s natural earthly beauty, my mind quieted into a place of rest and peace.
Thank You, Lord for this extraordinary time with You. Your presence comes to me at different times and is always a precious experience where my soul relaxes in quiet joy. How special was this morning, Lord! Thank You!
I am so thankful for this time with my God. I sorely needed it as life has recently been full of the grief of losing long time friends.
