It is January 31st. It is winter. But, it is 67 degrees outside! It is beautiful. It is glorious! Admittedly, it is a bit strange for this time of year, but I will gladly take it!
I spent a good deal of time outside today, enjoying this amazing weather. I played with our dogs in the back yard. I sat, soaking up the sunshine while taking in a good book. In my opinion, it just doesn’t get much better!
I hope you had the opportunity to get outside and enjoy some of it. These are the kinds of days where you can stop, look around, and take in the beauty of life. These are the types of days that are good for the soul. If you are like me, you wish everyday were like today.
Unfortunately, this is real life and not everyday can be as beautiful as today has been. But, when you are a child of God, and you keep your eyes focused on Him, you realize that you can easily find something good in each and every day.
Actually, as a child of God, you should be looking for the good in each day. God wants us to be happy and to find light, even in dark places. And, as we all know, there are plenty of dark places. But, there is also plenty of beauty to be found. But, you must be cognizant, be aware of your surroundings and start to seek it out.
Finding beauty in nature is an obvious place to start looking. So, why not start there? But, don’t stop there! You can find beauty in the smile of another person, in having shelter, in the ability to get out of bed, in a single blade of grass. As Matthew 7:7 teaches us, “…seek and ye shall find…”
I am so glad you are here! I am Erica Strickland, a girl who loves God. My goal here is to simply share His love and light.
