Just Look!

Look around, take it in and enjoy.

Seth had alot of help yesterday afternoon when he decided to mow the yard. It took him twice as long, but he patiently weaved around his "helpers" tagging alongside him on their 4-wheelers. While I was snapping pictures of this funny scene, I began to look around and take in the beauty of God's creation, right in our yard.

It's easy to look around your home and see the negative. The grass that needs mowing, the weeds that need to be pulled, the junk that just needs to be hauled off....but if you step back for a moment and really look, you will see beauty in everyday things.

It's really not that hard where we live. We are surrounded by nature. But even where I grew up in the middle of a busy city, you can find God's beauty everywhere. Just look!

Honor the Lord for the glory of his name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. -Psalm 29:2


  1. I love your house....I hope we can come out and visit soon!!! Maybe on your next school break

  2. That would be great. We have a three day weekend nearly every month. The first one is Labor Day, of course. How sad is it that school hasn't started and I am already looking for the holidays?
