Dear Friend,

In recent weeks I have been in Virginia, Iowa, Nebraska, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Arizona, and California. In every location I have found the beauty of the country to be astonishing.

It is literally awesome! Every single place has its unique beauty to be enjoyed and appreciated.

I often find myself with something on my mind or checking my email or talking on my cell phone whether I am walking down a sidewalk or sitting on the porch. I suddenly “wake up” and think, “What am I doing here?"

The email can wait. The conversation can usually wait. Whatever is on my mind can wait. It is time to just feel awe and to pray to my Lord, “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Psalm 8:1*

When you are outside, “push pause” on the usual things you think about and appreciate the awesome world around you!

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Psalm 19:1
