Surroundings - Creating in Faith


We can often look at our surroundings and feel that they some how do not match with where we feel we should be, or we may not appreciate what we have.  In both cases we might feel there is a miss match going on and search for a way to get out of what we consider is not right for us, some times we miss it because we needed to look at a different angle.    If there is confusion and chaos in our surroundings it can also indicate a troubled and unsettled mind.  This is not a post about clearing your clutter, and hoarding, but a call for us to really look at what we have around us and decide whether we can really see what we have around us, be it clutter or blue skies, either way do we notice them. For too often we miss what we have around us because we are rushing around, filling our lives with 'stuff', and all this 'stuff' that doesn't really have a positive impact on what we need to be doing with our lives.  Sometimes we are surrounded by sadness with illness and pain, and we are unable to take the breath needed to see the gifts that are sitting in amidst the ashes.

When you look out of your window in the morning, what do you see, really see.  What sounds can you hear - from the car passing to the rushing wind as it blows through the trees, do you hear the birds chattering or rain drops falling? can you hear the movement in your house, the door creaking, a cupboard closing, the laughter of your child?.  

Don't let another day pass without really taking note, how can you contribute in a positive way to your surroundings, and make it better for the next generation?  As you go about your day take the time to really appreciate what you have.
 
Tomorrow kicks of with the first A-Z April Challenge post, and its been great making the preparations for it.  Don’t forget that the clocks go forward today, so you gain extra day light.  It really does make a difference and the evenings will be brighter as well.

With April being a celebratory month for me my posts will reflect that, I will be holding a daily celebration of life and hope to encourage you in the process!


I look forward to seeing your comments and insights along the way.  The preparations have been made, the table set and all that’s missing is you.  You will definitely get something out of being part of the process come and take the time this month to share a piece of you!

I lift up my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from?  My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth... Psalm 121:1-2

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart ...Psalm 37.4
  
for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations 

Proverbs 27:24
