One day last week it finally dawned on me that I am living in a postcard. After living in Nice for a year, I sometimes take for granted the beauty that is always around me. Isn't it strange how easy it is to forget how very blessed you are and how beautiful your surroundings are? How, when you walk past the same things everyday, they become so normal that you almost forget that they are breathtaking. Since I have realized this, every day when I look outside, I remind myself to really look at the beauty that is God's creation. That an awesome God created a world where there are crystal clear seas next to green palm trees that back up to breathtaking snow capped mountains. Amazing.
As we are so close to Easter, I think this is a great reminder of how awesome our Father is. He not only created an incredible planet for us to live in and be its caretakers but He also sent His only Son so we would have the chance to know Him and be restored to what we are intended to be. I pray you all have a wonderful Easter season and are greatly renewed in mind, body, and soul.
