See it, enjoy it, enjoy Him

Hoping for less than 5 km winds, camped out in our hotel suite, waiting for 11 pm to see if we would be flying up and away in a hot air balloon come morning. Disappointment, it’s a no go with a windy forecast . . . but we did get to sleep in instead of rising at 5 am — bonus! We are also up LATE enough for breakfast in the lobby –see –not so bad.

So now what? Antique shopping across the street beckoned. Interesting and nostalgic but no 50 cent discoveries. I think we may be we more the garage sale type. On to the town of Elora, I had no idea it was so nice.  And the Elora Gorge – how beautiful. We had hoped to float on tubes down the river but the water levels were too high so we took the slower way down river, yep; on foot.

Walking and talking, taking it all in, enjoying each mile

Walking and talking, taking it all in, enjoying each mile

“The heavens declare the glory of God,” it says in Psalm 19:1 in the Bible. So God created me, (and you) such a tiny part of this great creation. Why? Isaiah 40:26 says, “Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these (stars)? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name, by the greatness of His might, and because He is strong in power, not one is missing.” Isaiah 43:6-7 says we were created for His glory. Today I had the chance to see and savour His creation, His glory. Here’s a few pics to show off His work. Often in today’s world I get caught treasuring and valuing what God created more than Him. I have to remember the Christian gospel is about “the glory of Christ”, not about me.

Romans 5:2 “We rejoice in hope of the glory of God”. I hope and trust God will continue to work in me, help me show His glory to others. This blog seemed like one way to do it. Today I was blessed by not only His creation in nature but some good friends to enjoy it with. So much to be thankful for.
