Enjoy the View


In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.

In ten days, we traveled from country to country, toured magnificent churches filled with gold and beautiful paintings, climbed bell towers that overlooked the cities, saw palaces and statues and monuments, hiked trail after trail, hopped from island to island, and got lost...a lot. Around every corner was something new and extraordinary that we could discover!  But, midst our busy sightseeing schedule, the greatest moments were when we just had to stop and enjoy the view. 

In those moments, time seemed to stand still. There is something so incredible about the beauty of nature, it is hard to explain, you just have to experience it. When you gaze upon God's glorious creations, the cares of the world just float away. There are no bills to pay or deadlines to meet, no relationships to fix or projects to finish, no drama, no fears, no hurt. In its breathtaking splendor, everything is okay, even if just for that moment. 

We need these moments to reflect on all things good, to renew our spirit, and refresh our mind, body, and soul.  We need these moments to remember what really matters, what it feels like to be at peace. So whenever you can, stop, and enjoy the view.
