Genesis 1:21 – So God created the great sea monsters, and every living creature that moves, or every kind, with which the waters swarm and every winged birds of every kind.  And God saw that it was good.

My morning routine usually involves a walk around my neighborhood.  It allows me to clear my mind as I start a new day.  I usually see birds, rabbits and squirrels going about their morning routine.  Occasionally, I see deer out grazing or a fox pass by and on the very rare occasion, a bear.  They remind me of God’s gifts on earth and life’s simplicities.

Dear Lord, Thank you for all that you have given us.  Help us slow down and take time to see your beauty all around us.  Yes, it IS good.  Amen
