As we go through our daily lives some of us get desensitizes to our surroundings. The birds may be singing in the morning with beautiful song. But because of the rush rush in the world some may miss the beauty of hearing it. Some may not notice how lovely the flowers are in bloom, the lemons, oranges and grapefruits hanging from the neighbors trees. Some may be so busy, they do not notice the man or woman going through the trash cans in the ally for something to eat or collecting the plastic bottles to turn in for the little change one gets just to eat or drink. The time may past so fast some may forget to tell a loved one that they love them and could not do without them. Yes, there are many who do not take the time to smell the roses. God always makes time for each and every one of us.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
