Look Down, Look Up!
I was happily scouring the lawn and ground around our pond for skeletized leaves to use for making my art cards, along with small cones and lichens I collect for other purposes. Then there are the tiny and detailed feathers left behind from my ducks and wild birds. While looking for these treasures I delight in the little bulbs sprouting, some fantastic fungi and ...OWWW!!!! I walked right into a low growing branch, poking my face and eyes. I immediately thought to myself, " I am so busy looking down I forgot to look up and see where I am going." And then I realized how like my life that is. I get so excited and distracted by my earthly treasures ( family, friends, possessions, hobbies, etc,) I hurt myself by forgetting to look up, up to my Heavenly Father and His Son in Whom rests my help, my foundation, my hope, my eternity. "If you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above,where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth." Colossians 3:1,2
