Keeping My Promise

I told you I would be more diligent in my posting so here I am keeping my promise.

The front range covered in snow at 6:30 this morning was beautiful. I am so blessed to be able to live here. I never tire of looking at Pikes Peak and the front range. Some days it’s purple, some days orange, and others green and brown.

After living in Australia and going to the beach as often as possible I will never sing about the ocean the same way again and now I will never sing about the mountains the same again.

I remember sitting on my balcony one Saturday morning with my guitar. Kim had placed flower boxes on the railing and I was sitting there watching a bee buzz around the flowers. After a few minutes I felt God ask me “why do you think I made the flowers?” When God asks a question He is not looking for information so I said “I don’t know” and He said to me “for your enjoyment”.

I was overwhelmed with His goodness. The flowers don’t exist for the bee but for the enjoyment of His children. Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden for the purpose of fellowship with God and the enjoyment of the surroundings. Yes they were tasked with tending the garden but before the fall it wasn’t work.

Jesus came to restore all things. God’s original plan was fellowship with those made in His image. Don’t take for granted the glory of God in His creation. Take time to take it in and give Him praise because the heavens declare the glory of God and the if we don’t praise Him the rocks will cry out.

Notice him in His creation today. He is good!
