Window to the World

You sit in an office...staring at a computer...performing the same repetitive tasks over and over...wondering why you are here...

And then, God gives you a window. A window that looks out at the world He created. Suddenly, in the midst of the mundane, you can see the sun breaking through the tops of the trees. Shining through the glass. Warming your face. Causing the grass to sparkle as it reflects off the dew.

Or maybe the sun is hiding today, and, instead, you get a rainstorm so close you feel you need an umbrella. Just on the other side of the glass.

And we cannot forget the visitors who come to keep you company. The regal egret, slowly picking his way through the landscaping. He stops and eyes any movement he sees coming from inside the glass on his way by. And there are the cardinals that visit the large palmetto bush just the other side of the lawn. The little stray cat that stops and peaks in the window to see what you are doing from time to time with her belly full of kittens that are soon to make their appearance.

Today's visitor was another flash of red in the big oak tree. You watched and realized it was a little woodpecker flitting among the branches looking for unsuspecting insects.

Ah....God's glory!

Often we get so caught up in what we believe are our mundane, monotonous lives that we forget God's glory is all around us. We simply have to have our eyes open to see.

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord, I want to see You.
