Burst onto song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees Isaiah 44:23

Once I heard a pastor one time ask a group of children “How does a tree give glory to God?  How does an elephant give glory?” His answer has had a profound effect on my outlook especially on days like today when I am physically feeling really awful. His answer was “Just by being a tree.  Just by being an elephant.” Gloriously colored trees in the fall of year always remind me of this.  A hillside filled with trees giving glory to God just by being.   Just by being what we are created to be, we give glory to the One who created us.  Now on some days that makes for a busy day and on other days,  like today, I can rest in knowing I give glory to God by being what He created me to be.   The beauty of a foggy mist among the trees on the hill this morning
Today even though I feel awful and I choose to be thankful for:
  • Abba Father who watches over me, forgives me and loves me right where I am
  • His provision and healing touch
  • Puppies who sleep in my lap and beg for my chicken
  • Old movies that I can enjoy with my daughter
