Day 22: God's Creation

In looking for our own Mount Tabor to experience the glory of the Lord this Lent, it is most fitting to look for him in His magnificent creation.  For those of us who live in South Florida, it often difficult to look beyond the traffic and the endless sprawling jungle of suburbs and strip malls, but they all end where the Atlantic Ocean begins out east and where the Everglades begin out west and in points in between, there are little parcels of quiet green space where one can retreat to have their quiet moments with God and his creation.  Yesterday was one of those days for me where I ventured out to the ocean to just take in the majesty of God's handiwork.  It was a particularly windy, yet sunny day and the waves at times crashed rather violently along the seawall. There I stood on a pier gazing out at God's wonders.  The sun dancing so beautifully off the water, the waves crashing up against sailboats anchored offshore, the wind brushing through the palm trees.  Even the night before when it rained all night, it was fitting to see how God takes care of his creation with the much needed rainfall.  Today, find a green spot or a piece of creation where you can have a moment with God.  It could be your backyard, it could be a tiny little piece of grass near your work, but God has gifted us with such a beautiful day, don't let it pass without marveling at the work of His hands.
