I have to admit...

I have to admit, before this time of isolation, I was a hurrier - for the first time in a very long time He has my full attention!

Considering this time at home I think of some the phrases I've heard and ignored my whole life describing slowing down - resting...

Take time to smell the roses

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans

The best things in life are free

Enjoy the little things because one day you may look back and realize they were the big things

As the sun hit my tulips this morning it caused me to catch my breath at their beauty.  If things were normal I probably would have rushed by.  Instead I took time to consider, why  does the almighty God care about such detail?  It caused me to praise Him and thank Him for his attention to detail in creation - things that all the hard work and hurrying around could never duplicate...

Matthew 6:38 & 39
And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin.  Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Today I encourage you to take a hard look around you - maybe go outside while we still have a glimpses of the sun (probably won't last long in Ohio!).  And worship the God that controls every detail of all of creation, including the details of your life!
