I looked out the hotel window this morning to see this view. The mountains are magnificent. Yes down in the foreground are brown trees, railroad tracks, interstate 15 and a parking lot.
But just look at the mountains! Where I live we have mountains. But they’re not this tall nor covered in snow!
Seeing all the distractions in the foreground could definitely distract from the resplendent beauty; if you let it.
This picture is rather like life isn’t it? All the laundry, dishes, chores, work outside of the home, can easily distract us from the resplendent beauty of the relationships around us. We are wearied by all the doing and going. We miss the chance to sit with our friend, or child or spouse and simply BE together.
When I saw this vista these words came to mind:
I hope you will “look to the mountains and know where your help comes from”
I’m praying for you this week!
