Praiseworthy.

Every time I see a beautiful sunset, I always think of Psalm 19. How could you see something so spectacular, so beautiful and not praise God for His creation? I do believe these sunsets are praiseworthy.

I took both of these pictures outside of our church, Bay Area Fellowship (The first picture I took tonight, the second one a few months ago). ┬áBoth were taken with my camera phone… so you can only imagine how spectacular they were in person.

Grand Tetons, Wyoming.

4Do you see the cross in front of the big picture window inside the chapel?

This has to be one of the prettiest places on earth.

It literally takes your breath away.

On a clear day… it looks like this:

There are so many things around us to be thankful for.

So often we take what is “free” for granted as if has no value.

And really, the “free” things…

sunrises, sunsets, puffy clouds, starry nights, cool breezes, wildflowers, hummingbirds…

are the most invaluable, spectacular of all.

God gives us His creation to enjoy

A gift to ALL of us.

Regardless of wealth, status, position or title.

That alone is praiseworthy.

The real question is…

are we too

busy

distracted

preoccupied

indifferent

consumed

to enjoy the works of His hands?

to be thankful?

to be grateful?

to give praise?

to even care?

It’s humbling to even have to “remember” to stop and enjoy the splendor of God’s creation.

Lucky for us, tomorrow is the first day of the rest of our lives.

A new day, another chance.

The perfect opportunity to start fresh.

God is good.

And oh so praiseworthy.

    Wee said. Thanks for the reminder. And, I love Wyoming. If I could handle that much cold, I would urge Big Buckaroo to go with National Parks and move there.

    Have a blessed day,

    Oh thank you for this. I really like Psalm 19.
    I too have been thinking of this…I am definitely guilty of not taking the time to take our Lord’s splendor in. I was reminded of this yesterday when I finally got to leave my home after an ice storm was starting to melt away. I saw the icicles on the tree melting and they really looked like glass. They sparkled and the sun reflected all the colors of the rainbow off the icicles. It was in that moment that I thanked God for providing such a beautiful sight. I stopped the car for a bit just to take it in.
