Heaven-Breathed Freshness

Today my wife and I sat out on the deck for our morning devotions.  It is so handy to be able to get outside from our dining room.  There in the beauty of freshly leafed trees dripping with last night’s rain and birds chirping sweetly we read words about the Lord who sits in splendor in the heavens.  There we read words of guidance from the Creator urging me to build my life upon a foundation which will last.  There we heard the words of our Savior bemoaning the fact that often times God’s messengers do not receive the honor due them.
As I contemplate this beauty I find It odd that as one created by God and surrounded by His beauty I am so easily distracted from Him.  Yesterday in the stifling heat, we resorted to artificially cooling our house with processed air.  It helped us bear up under the oppressive heat.  Today, however, because the air is cooler, we have opened up the house.  Sitting on the deck, the air feels purified and almost sweet.   It feels heaven-breathed instead of machine exhaled.
It feels like sweet harmony now between creation and the Creator.  I am thankful for this morning’s time with God and the peace I now feel.
