God Watching Day 10

"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now." Matthew 6:34a
The Message

Back in the darkest days of my life when I used to doubt that there was a God, I would turn to things of beauty... to the sheer wonders of the color and majesty of creation, to art and to music. All those things that are not necessary to life but add so much to it's enjoyment. I would think, "With all this rampant unnecessary beauty, there must be a loving creator behind all this somehow. " Every now and then when I hear a symphony or see a painting or a sunset I am reminded of that, and called back to remembering just how flagrantly we are loved by God. Listening to the Chamber Symphony tonight did that for me. Right now, as always, God is creating beauty....just for the sheer joy of it.
