This morning, I saw the most beautiful bright blue sky peeking out from behind the clouds. It’s a sight I have a new appreciation for after having a conversation with Charlie and Jeannie, a wonderful couple in our class who are from NY.

They were sharing things they love about our state (which is always nice to hear). One of their favorite things? Our blue skies. Excuse me. Blue skies? Doesn’t everyone have blue skies? Apparently not.

Charlie went on to say how often he stops to simply gaze at the sky, using it as a time of worship. Shame on me! Not only have I taken our beautiful skies for granted, I certainly haven’t paused often enough for long gazes.

Now, I can’t help but wonder what else I’m taking for granted on a daily basis. I’m praying for “fresh” eyes to see God’s handiwork all around me and to use it as another opportunity for worship.

Thank you Charlie and Jeannie!
