Our daughter Amanda came out from California to spend a few days here last week, and one of the first things she noticed was the blue sky—a crystal clear, sapphire canopy right overhead. Where she lives, the sky is typically white.
While she was here, we went on a half-day Jeep tour through Red Canyon and the mountains beyond. Thank the Lord for seat belts!
And of course Amanda had to stand on the EDGE of the ledge to take a picture while Mom took a picture and prayed for stability.
During our trip that day, I thought about what was right in my backyard: grandeur, beauty, history. If I hadn’t taken a tour off the normal everyday path, I would not have seen these wonders. A similar thing happened to Moses when he turned aside to see the burning bush. If he hadn’t stepped off the normal everyday path, he might have missed hearing from God.
All the world’s a page, and the stories written there are worth the discovery.
Take a moment, an hour, a day. Step aside and listen, observe. See what amazing things the Lord has written.
