Look Up

Throughout the day, I often find it necessary to stop in the midst of an overwhelming moment and look up to the Great Creator. Then, a calming effect takes place as I remember that I am not alone to continue the tasks that lie ahead.
“I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” ~ Psalm 121:1-2 (NLT)

Standing Firm

To think these small seeds have the ability

within them to produce such large trees - To think that these trees have sustained

sunlight, rain, thunderstorms, snowstorms, northeasters and are still standing firm - is another creation mystery that simply amazes me!

Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. ~ Genesis 1:11 (NIV)
