Good Morning! I have become that person I used to see driving on the road, you know...the one who drives too slow, way below the speed limit. I used to hate that. Now that I am semi retired and don't have to rush thru life, I like to slow down and see the beauty of God's handiwork all around me. I am thinking about having a bumper sticker made that says...I am retired...go around! So now to keep from receiving certain gestures, both verbally and physically, or to not get shot at, I just pull over and let them go on their ever rushing way. It's amazing what you can see if you just slow down a little. I believe this is essential in maintaining the proper frame of mind in a lost and dying world. Genesis 1 says; [Gen 1:11-12, 20-21 NLT] 11 Then God said, "Let the land sprout with vegetation--every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came." And that is what happened. 12 The land produced vegetation--all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds produced plants and trees of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. ... 20 Then God said, "Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind." 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird--each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good."
I love the different seasons for they bring something different that I enjoy. We are in that time when snow could start coming down, and I know what a pain it can be, but if I am really honest I enjoy watching it come out of the heavens and making things quiet! It's like God slows us down to see the beauty and miracles He has made. Take time to look around you to see the beauty of his creation! Check out some of the incredible animals He invented...what an imagination He has. Slow down and learn to worship Him in your everyday life...and give Him thanks.
