Sometimes living in the city can just make you feel so boxed in with all the roads, buildings, cars, and concrete.  At those times I find it difficult to see God's creation in my surroundings.  

Today is a beautiful day here in TX.  The sun is shining, the air has a fall chill, and there is a slight breeze.  I decided to take the boys up to have lunch with Daddy.  As I was sitting at the same stoplight for a couple of turns due to a stalled car in front of me, I turned my head and looked out at the slope down to my left and was just stricken by the beauty of God's creation.  There next to me was some 2 foot tall grasses waving in the breeze and for a moment I totally forgot where I was and just saw God's hand brushing the tips of those grasses.  Such a feeling of peace.

What a simple reminder that God's creations are all around us if we just slow down long enough to see them...
