Day 12 Give Thanks to the Lord

November 12th:  Give thanks to the Lord for His artwork.  God provides so much natural beauty to us.  I stepped outside for a walk this week and noticed how clear the night sky was.  It’s hard to even comprehend the massive size space really is.  I was in awe at the sight of all the stars and even witnessed a shooting one.  Every sunset, every sunrise reminds us of the beauty that surrounds us.  If you don’t already, just take some time in the next few weeks and watch a sunset.  Turn off the phone and grab a latte while you do it.  For me, it relaxes me and helps me realize the important things in life.

I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. – Genesis 9:13

God uses beauty to remind us that He is always present in our lives.  He is always there when we need Him.  He shows us His strength in the power of the waves.  He shows us His kindness in the form of light and dainty snowflakes.  He shows us His grace in the regrowth of the forest floor after a fire.  Nature shows us that life is always living and God loves us.  Thank you Lord for providing us with the constant reminder that we are surrounded by your love.
