The Big Picture

In life it's easy to get bogged down by the all consuming little things. Everything that makes your day great or your day suck. Bills, not enough sleep, to much to do, stress, chores, homework, and the list goes on. All those things that demand so much from us on a regular basis. You stop noticing beauty in life and forget to see how much you are blessed every single day. Things you take for granted, good family that loves each other and God, yummy food to eat, a good roof over your head, a car to drive, warm sunny days, green grass and trees all around you, and a God that knows everything about you and loves you anyway. ;) Yes you may not have everything you want in life, but you are blessed. In life its easy to lose sight of the big picture.

And when I say big picture I mean a high res. landscape with you as the focal point. Time to brake out your wide angle lens and capture the big picture. I don't know what yours looks like, but even though mine is a bit blurry right now, it's looking pretty ding, dang, dong good!

(Disclaimer: This is a random photo of a friend from a while ago. I don't actually have a "big picture" but I thought this one was cool.)

I got a chance to go outside today, lay on a blanket in the grass, listen to my favorite music, sip a yummy smoothie all while watching the end of a beautiful sunset. (I would recommend doing this as much as possible.) It was nice to lay there and just enjoy being. Listening to encouraging songs that somehow speak to me in new ways almost every time I listen to them. And it was good to think. Think about what is going on in my life, in the world, and how God is in control of it all. 

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?

O Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Till later...
