I was taking the garbage out tonight (usually Tim's job, but he had a wart removed on his foot, so he is hobbling a bit) and I was struck by how amazingly beautiful the sky is this evening. It is so clear and still and the stars are so bright. I think it is even more gorgeous because it was cold and foggy all of last week. But tonight is perfect. It made me think on how small I am and how big our God is. Just looking into the vastness of the sky and seeing the endless expanse of sky and stars and knowing that God created that. And God created me with the same care and detail and precision.
Thank you Lord, for all that you are and all that you've done. Your works are amazing and I pray that you will cause me to pause and take them in more frequently. I thank you for all the blessings in my life and for all you have done for me. And, Lord, I thank you for the things you haven't done in my life, because I know that your will and plan for me are more wonderful and beautiful and great than I could ever think to imagine.
