I am reminded by this short story, of how often I am so caught up with the details of life, and the circumstances around me, that I fail to see the beauty that exists. I took this picture, two weeks ago while driving early one morning, near my home. Once again, I almost missed the beauty above me because I was so busy with thoughts and concerns within me. What a good reminder, to take time to see God's amazing gifts of creation lovingly and carefully placed in my daily pathway, and may I never loose the 'wonder' of it all.

His 'Sight' Made The Difference
"A passenger on a long train trip was so enthralled by the journey that every few moments he was heard to say, "Wonderful!". The passing scenery, the faces of the fellow passengers, even the smallest details elicited from him glad expressions of keen enjoyment. Finally one traveler, overcome by curiosity, asked him, "How is it that while the rest of us are worn out with this monotonous trip, you are having the time of your life and you keep saying, "Wonderful!" He answered, "Until a few days ago, I was a blind man. A great doctor has just given me my sight, and what is ordinary to the rest of you is 'out of this world' to me. -----The Best of Vance Havner
