PUT THAT SPECIAL GLOW BACK IN YOUR SOUL
How did your morning start today? Did you rise with the sun shining and smiling with that special glow in your soul? You should; we should. The day is great, made special by the myriad of blessings strewn our way by a loving God. What others may think in their jaded minds as quite an ordinary day -- isn't really. But they can't see that because these awesomely wondrous things manifest themselves only to the simple trusting and childlike heart. Sadly that isn't what we are most times. We have shut ourselves - our minds, hearts, and souls - from that which is truly essential. All that we care about is being busy - like doing nothing is such a big crime. Busyness has its own place and time but we don't know how where and when to stop.
If we allow ourselves to be still for a moment from the hustle-and-bustle of our world, then we will be able to see the grandeur and magnificence of life and all that is in it on land, sea, and air.
--We can soar with our senses with the eagle on high,
--breathe in the fresh wisp of a gentle breeze,
--be soothed by a gentle flowing stream,
--be serenaded by the choir of birds song,
--be delighted by the sight of soft cotton clouds drifting by,
--be inspired by the height and majesty of the king mountains,
--marvel at the glorious arch of the rainbow,
--be awed by the infinite span and space of a clear blue sky,
--feel the tingling hug of cool waters at our feet on the seashore,
--savor the peace and calm of a serene sunset on the far horizon,
--and so much more; it's all up to you.
Think of these in your mind, feel it in your heart. Make these your first thoughts when you rise in the morn. The smile will come easy when the heart is full and the soul content and happy.
