Those early morning drives give me opportunity to be still, to be quiet, and to reflect on the miracle of it all. How fortunate I am to live in this part of the country and to witness and enjoy God's creative power. Yet, too often I take it for granted. I go to sleep at night assuming the sun will come up tomorrow. I go to sleep assuming I will live to enjoy another day. I assume a lot. Don't you?
It's easy to forget. It's easy to take everything for granted. It's easy to get so busy with living that we don't take time to appreciate and thank God for His countless blessings.
I wish you could see what I see as I drive to the city. However in order for that to happen you'd have to move here, and then this little city would become a big city, and the hills would turn into subdivisions and the highway would have double lanes of traffic and noise, -and I don't want that. Come visit when you can. You will always be welcome in our home. But stay where you are and take time to see and marvel at the beauty around you and thank God for the privilege to enjoy it all.
