I want to be the kind of woman that sees the work of God in the beauty all around me (especially here in the great Pacific Northwest). I sincerely want to be the kind of woman that truly recognizes that the beauty of nature is a gift from the God who created me. May I always strive to see the bigger picture, “take off my shoes” and humbly worship…not the created thing, but the CREATOR.
I love the following quote from Elizabeth Barrett-Browning:
“Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.”
“The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving toward all He has made.” (Psalm 145:13)
