Everyday, as I walk, I am amazed by the tapestry along the roadside.
Today I noticed leaf shapes.
Each leaf was the same tone of green. Yet, from plant to plant and bush to bush, each had its own exquisite shape.
Together they created the most beautiful tapestry in green.
A few days ago we took the rowboat out on the lake just before sunset.
In the stillness the lily pads and other water plants reflected the setting sun’s brilliant light.
We were in awe of another tapestry at the water’s edge.
A mirror formed across the face of the water. It captured the woods at waters edge, the water lilies, the sky and the clouds and sun.
Every. single. bit. proclaims the beauty of the Lord.
All that you have made gives thanks to you, Lord;
all your faithful ones bless you!
As we walked early this morning, we heard beautiful birdsong emanating from the woods.
We became silent so we could listen more intently to their song.
Their song was more than a mating call. I’m certain they were singing to their creator…praising him… and blessing him.
Let’s do that too.
Let’s join with all creation and bless the Lord!
What have you discovered to be the most meaningful way to bless the Lord?
Today is Joy Day!
One way to bless the Lord is to thank him for he has done.
Here at An Extraordinary Day we set aside time each week to look back over our week and count gifts, blessings, and give thanks for both the good and the not-so-good. And we get to do it together.
There’s a side benefit to counting, too. We get joy!
Please join me in looking back over the past week and counting ‘seven.’
Thank you God for…
biggiant juicy, sweet, fresh from the bush, blueberries.
- a productive week. It feels sooo good.
- a day spend with my dear friend. Oh the fun we had!
- the phone that finally arrived but didn’t work and another week of waiting for a new sim card.
- the weariness of waiting.
- your faithfulness. Your goodness. Your mercy. New…fresh…and abundant every day.
- another flush of wildflowers and being able to pick a handful to arrange to bless my friend.
Now it’s YOUR turn!!
Join me in counting ‘seven.’
