You know, I haven’t been able to spend a lot of time at home lately. I feel like I’m always going somewhere after work and on the weekends. It always amazes me though that when I am starting to just feel beat and I’m tired and I start to get cranky, I look up and realize that if I’d been at home I wouldn’t have been in my car at that time in the evening and would completely miss the beauty of the sunset. I know God didn’t paint it just for me, but it sure is a strong reminder that He is right there, smiling down on me.
When I am tired and just want to go to bed, I might not feel like walking the dog before I turn in. When I do though, I’m always amazed at the beauty of the night sky. I wouldn’t have seen all those stars if I had stayed in the house. I would have missed out on that beautiful moon and the warm, spring breeze if I had made someone else do it. (and the doggy kisses too)
The moral of the story, folks is that when life has you down, look up. Always try to find the good and the beautiful in everyday things and it will bring you peace and restore your joy.
