Simple Pleasures, Looking UP



I greet each day by looking West in our backyard, this is what greets me, as the sun rises behind me in the East, the clouds out over the Gulf of Mexico turn pink and the trees turn black. Simple pleasure!



“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9 NIV

You are blessed with gorgeous trees. I have the mountains and I do the same every morning as I walk the dogs. I see the progress of sunrise on the western mountains. I just love mornings.
