Far too often I am so busy - in my mind if not in my actions - that I fail to see the beauty around me. This day it is nearly impossible. I am at a beautiful lake in the Adirondack Region of New York State. The scenery is stunning! And yet, so many places - and people - are also stunningly beautiful. I mean inwardly. The beauty of God is everywhere and in everyone. No place does God not touch and heal and remain present. No place! And yet, we can just rush on by - missing it all. Today, in fact now, I pause to just marvel in it. I pray I will do so constantly through this day - and my life!
