I was reading the Bible earlier and looking for a bit of uplifting. Some days are just rough and sometimes a simple phrase can put it into perspective. "The heavens declare the glory of God. The expanse shows his handiwork. " So I read this and was just struck my how awesome a statement that is. I sit and I pray for all my little and big stuff. I pray for people we know, people on here, myself, and family but sometimes I just feel like maybe my prayers are just not important enough for an answer or maybe he just does not have time for something so unimportant. Then I walked outside to the most beautiful country skyline. So much detail and effort to give us something to be in awe of. Is there really a purpose to that beauty other than just lifting up our souls and letting us know he is there and capable of answering those big and small prayers? I just could not take my eyes off the sky. It might just be because I am out in the sticks that I am in awe of so much beauty but it does lift me up and I am thankful for that. This is I guess a religious post but if you have something else that just lifts your spirits up share it. Maybe someone else can get a boost from that same thing. I think everyone can use a bit of uplifting now and then.
