God's Artwork

Hello, friends!

Bill has been home since Wednesday evening this time, but we have been so busy, I haven't had much time to be on the computer.  I did want to share this though.

The other night after I got the children in bed, I went outside to water flowers, and the weeds were screaming at me again.  It was such a cool evening I just had to take the opportunity to pull some.  I was all wrapped up in what I was doing with my face looking to the ground.  When I finished one little section, I stood upright and looked up.  The view of the setting sun setting the tops of the trees aglow took my breath away.

I nearly broke my neck on the slick pathway trying to run in the house to get my camera.  As I continued watching, this is what God painted in the sky.

Beautiful isn't it?  Oh, but God wasn't through!

I honestly thought at any second, I was going to hear God's voice just as surely as Moses and Samuel heard God!

Oh, I am so glad I looked up from the task at hand!!!

It has been a long time since I did a post with a moral, but this one has one.  How many times do we miss God's blessings because we are so caught up in our problems or responsibilities that we fail to turn our face to heaven to praise God or seek His guidance?  No matter what is happening in our lives, if we can simply make ourselves turn our eyes to our Heavenly father, He has such rich blessings that we could never imagine.  I can almost hear Him calling, "Look to me, my child.  I have such gifts you can't begin to comprehend."  Even when things look and feel hopeless, He is gently calling.  Oh, what love He desires to bestow upon us!  He is just there waiting patiently for us to seek Him.  Won't you seek Him today?  He is waiting with His arms outstretched!

Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
