Inside Blessings, Outside Blessings, and Eyes to See Them

Ray and I spent a delightful Saturday with several of our grandchildren. Inside the house, the floor was so strewn with four decades of knights and horses and cars and toy buildings and Little People® that we tiptoed across the floor like we were walking an obstacle course.

Outside, a gentle rain fell on the flower garden and the distant hills. Our 11-year-old granddaughter drew my attention to the view. Her words of praise caused me to take a closer look. It was a moment of shared joy.

I stepped outside where raindrops fell in a soothing pitter patter. Leaves swayed in the gentle breeze. A narrow stream of rainwater cascaded off the porch roof. Fog rose above the river. High in the sky a soft light illuminated some of the clouds.

May God give us eyes like our granddaughter’s, eyes that notice the glory of what He has created outside in His big, beautiful world. May He also give us eyes that notice the glory of what He created inside our houses in His precious little children.

Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
Sing praises to our God on the lyre,
Who covers the heavens with clouds,
Who provides rain for the earth,
Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.
He gives to the beast its food,
And to the young ravens which cry.
He does not delight in the strength of the horse;
He does not take pleasure in the legs of a man.
The Lord favors those who fear Him,
Those who wait for His lovingkindness.
Psalm 147:7-11
