Don’t Miss Out!

C.S. Lewis didn’t own a car so he walked a lot. He loved his daily walks and enjoyed hiking for days with his friends around the English countryside. What is so meaningful to me, especially when he was walking alone, are his descriptions of what he saw. His walks weren’t just to get somewhere else or for exercise, he enjoyed what he experienced. He describes sounds, smells, cloud formations, flowers, trees, insects and other creatures he meets, in glowing detail. God gave us senses for our enjoyment, but we can be so distracted by what life throws at us that we can miss out on the joys God intended. Do we gulp down that first cup of coffee without fully sensing the aroma, the warmth, the sweetness or creaminess of whatever we add to it. How about mowing the yard or weeding our gardens, just chores or meaningful times with God’s nature? Let’s live in the moment!

  1. This is my heart exactly, to find pleasure in all of God’s wonders and to praise him. Just this morning I zoomed outside with my phone on camera, because I could not waste the sky’s beautiful colors and wanted to keep it close with a picture. How wonderful are all of the things around us that God has made. Thank you Sheila for the reminder. Anne
