Today in our advent devotional we looked at Genesis 1and read the story of how God formed the world... the beauty expressed in Creation as He spoke it into being. We were reminded that God created all of it for us because He loves us!
As I look at the sunrise outside my window each morning, at the rainbows that happen so often here, at the flowers that are so intricate and beautiful...
and today, as I looked at the mountain behind our house...
I was reminded of how I am constantly seeing God's love poured out for us in His Creation.
Today, it was about the simple reminder- and yet the amazing depth- of His great love and how
"the greatest gift we can give back to our great God is to let His love make us glad."
When we see His love expressed around us and for us, it should lead us to live joyfully! If we could only stop each day and take it all in, how much richer our lives would be!
This Christmas season, my prayer is that I, that we, wouldn't miss opportunities to see His love around us... that we wouldn't go through Christmas so quickly that we don't take the time to stop and adore Him.
Where did you see His love today? What can you intentionally do tomorrow, and throughout this Christmas season, to be sure you don't miss Him?
