For as long as I live on this earth I will continue to be amazed at the beauty that God continually puts before me. Not only is each day gift from God, but also in each day there are many gifts to be had. Will I chose to let God’s gifts slip by unnoticed or will I slow down and stop to unwrap them? If I don’t choose to unwrap them, will they still be there waiting or will they slowly slip away to be lost forever?
I am so thankful that I didn’t let this one slip away unnoticed. This evening I stopped and watched as this wonderful and amazing gift was unwrapped before my eyes. As the sun slowly slipped down into the ocean I watched the sky turned to beautiful shades of oranges, reds, yellows and blues and the waves were shining and glittering like black glass. I felt like an artist was painting on a canvas right before me. As I savored and enjoyed this gift that was given to me I realized what an awesome God I serve and just how blessed I am. He is the artist, the amazing one who created this beautiful gift and I am thankful and in awe that he gave it to me.
