Sunsets & the Little Things

Genesis 2:19 19 So out of the ground the LORD God formed every animal of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the human to see what he would call them; and whatever the human called every living creature, that was its name.

Happy Friday y’all, we made it! I just want to share something I’ve been thinking about as I’ve been spending more time outdoors (all thanks to the boy).

About two years ago I went on a sunrise hike on Easter morning. I sat on the top of the mountain, along with some of my friends apart of a Christian organization I am in. In the moment, I was so in awe of the sun rise and the beauty of the view. Obviously the scenery was enhanced because we were hundreds of feet in the sky, but I thought to myself, this happens every day! The sun rises and sets everyday! I don’t have to plan outings to appreciate this beauty!

I thought about this again last night. I went to an orchard on top of a mountain  to watch the sunset in the company of a bad band but really good peach donuts,  hard apple cider, and friends.

After my experience last night and in the past few months, I want to encourage you to appreciate the nature around you. The sun rising and setting, the blooming of a flower, or the ordinary tree in your front yard. All of these are God’s creations, and they are all here for a purpose. Acknowledge them and appreciate them.

Happy Friday!
