Sunset and Simplicity

One of the great things about the country is you can't miss God's majesty in creation. It is His breath and His gift and it fills me with peace and awe at His majesty and creativity. All this breathed from His mouth and came into existance as an amazing gift for us. I want to see Him in everything, everywhere, every moment, all the time. That is my prayer ... to walk beside Jesus consciously every moment that I breathe. And, maybe, enough of Him will rub off in me and others will be draw to Him, too. Enjoy the sunset and simple beauty ...
