"May the Lord be glad in his works!"
I feel closer to God when I am outside. There I can always get an eyeful of evidence of God's power, wisdom and love.
The sky is amazing, and the sight to see it multiplies the miraculous nature of it all! When we step outside we remove a man-made layer of insulation between us and God. I can see the very works of His hands!
Many years ago I was recovering from a nervous illness. I found two things that would immediately make me feel better. One was creativity. The other was to take a walk outside.
And I think it is doubly wonderful that God's word reveals that he also rejoices in his works! Thank you God for this daily sermon without words, your Creation!
