Watching the Grass Grow November 04, 2016

When I was younger I could never understand how old people could just sit on their porch and "watch the grass grow." I mean, goodness! How boring!! There is so much to do!! So much to go out and experience!! How can you just sit there??

I get it now. As I sit out on my back porch watching the clouds pass by, listening to the hummingbirds chirp at each other and watching the Lord paint the morning with a warm melon shades pushing through the deep blue of the night. I understand the respect of acknowledging how marvelous our Creator is. He made all this. It doesn't just happen. I have the privilege to watch Him at work praising the beauty He is creating! I am honored to get to spend time with Him, in the quiet, listening to His words for me. I am not wasting my time. I am embracing my God and growing closer with him! There is no greater adventure!! There is nothing more important to my soul!! So yes, I will "just sit here and watch the grass grow" knowing that Jesus is sitting here with me, spending time with me, as we watch the splendor the Lord is creating right now.
