Thanksgiving Challenge Day 2

This is the second in a series of short, daily posts I’m writing between now and Thanksgiving in an effort to establish a lifestyle of thankfulness.  If you’d like to take the challenge too, leave a comment about what you’re thankful for below.

I can’t even begin to describe the sunrise I saw on my way into work this morning, but I’ll try.  I drive through a short stretch of farmland surrounded by rolling hills of Kentucky bluegrass.  Just as I dropped into a valley, the sun broke over the horizon to my left and washed over a frost covered pasture.  To my right it lit up the fiery reds and oranges of huge maple trees covering the hillside.   I felt like I was in a painting.  How many scenes like this has God crafted over the years?  Incredible.

God,

I’m thankful that You take my breath away, thankful for your artistry, thankful I got to start my day with such a spectacular moment, thankful that I get live another day in Your world.

Thanks,

Jason

What the most beautiful moment in nature you’ve ever seen?

  1. Jason, God does not send such beautiful imagery to you, it is there whether you are present or not. The joy and wonder is being cognizant and aware enough to see the beauty of the Earth and yes give thanks for your eyes and ears and skin.
