Today I am thankful for:
Sitting by the fireplace,
my eyes seem drawn to the brightness.
The dancing flames somehow hold my gaze.
It is relaxing and refreshing,
draws me away from the every-day and
incites reflection in my heart.
This reminds me of Hebrews 12:2
which encourages “..fixing our eyes on Jesus…”
Sitting at the feet of the Savior,
I am drawn to the Brightness.
His beauty holds my gaze, refreshes my soul,
and carries me away from the every-day.
But I can never enjoy the blessings of
either the fireplace or the Savior
unless I first take the time to sit and gaze.
Lord, don’t let me keep going
without taking time today
to sit at Your feet and bask in Your beauty.
