On this beauty of a summer’s night
I’m captivated by
the rustling leaves of sweet pear trees
and the vibrant colored sky
the view, it melts away my cares
and thoughts that brings me grief
and fills my heart with gratitude
His perfect love-
My girls and I recently took a road trip to see a dear friend. I took this photo from her backyard as we watched the setting sun. It was a gorgeous evening.
I began to think about this peach tree, and how I would usually think it was in the way- blocking the perfect sunset view. Isn’t it funny how being somewhere new gives us a different perspective?
The tree only added to the awesome picture He was painting that night. Instead of thinking things are in the way of what I’m looking for- I need to see these obstacles as part of His bigger plan…His bigger picture. I was blessed that night. God is good-all the time!
Lord, help me find joy in all things… help me to keep my eyes fixed on You, no matter what seems to get in the way!
Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37
