Open Your Eyes

I’m oftened moved by the things I see in nature. Take today for example. What started out as a sunny day has changed to mostly cloudy…that is as far as it is seen from the natural perspective. Yet clouds can be quite fascinating.

I remember as a little girl I would spend hours watching the clouds on a warm summer day. What I could see in the clouds was only limited by my imagination. The clouds would take on the shape of many different animals and sometimes you could even see a human face. Those faces would sometimes have over-emphasized features…a long nose, a protruding forehead. Only my imagination limited what I could see in those big fluffy clouds.

I wonder how many times we limit God because we have forgotten to imagine how big and awesome He is and wants to be to us. Maybe you haven’t ever noticed how many times He has chosen to come and sit right beside you. How many times have you looked into the eyes of a little child and seen God simply because of their simple, child-like faith that causes them to believe in the unexpected.

Maybe today is the day for you to expect, with that simple faith, that God is right there with you, holding your hand, and smiling at His beautiful child – YOU. Hoping that you can take a moment from your fast-past life and watch a cloud or peer into the eyes of a sweet child or stop and feed some ducks at the park. Don’t forget to take pleasure in the things all around you that the Creator has made just for you.

Have a blessed day!
