"The pastures in the wilderness glisten with moisture, and the hills are clothed with joy." Psalms 65:12.
Oh how blessed I am to have the ability to see God's beauty!! How often do we take for granted the simple things in life? For instance, the ability to "see" so many of God's creations. One of my favorite things to do, as my pain permits, is to grab the camera and try to capture the beauty of God's magnificent drawing board.
After a peaceful evening rain shower, I stepped outside to breathe in the freshness of the crisp, clean air. I had taken a few pictures of the passing clouds. Then I turned to see the tiny drops of leftover rain dripping from the leaves of my first tree I had planted here on my property. The one little rain drop seemed to just be slowly lingering on the end of one of the leaves. God had my attention in that very moment. I was able to capture that moment in time and added a bible verse.
How often do we overlook something so important as a tiny rain drop? Without the rain we have no way of enjoying even the beauty of the leaves. How could the trees grow without those tiny droplets? Although, I have some physical limitations, I'm so thankful for my eyesight and my hearing. God sees our tiny "tear drops" that fall upon our face too. He loves each of us so much and He cares about every happy or sad tear that falls. He hears our prayers and knows our thoughts. How can we not take a moment from our busy lives to not see the smallest of these things He puts before us like this tiny rain drop?? Heavenly Father, thank you for quickening my spirit with this gentle reminder. You see my tears that fall upon my face when I am in pain. In this very moment you have reminded me "I am never alone."
