Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. -- Rachel Carson
I added the words "take the time...to look...and really see" as I contemplated how we miss so much in our daily lives that God gives to us to enjoy...His gifts, His mercies. And I recall another quote.
Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance toward the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point. Climb slowly, steadily, enjoying each passing moment; and the view from the summit will serve as a fitting climax for the journey. -- Harold V. Melchert
So continue whatevery journey God is guiding you on, but don't miss His wonderful gifts along the way.
