In Tens (Number Four)
Every now and then, maybe more often than not, God gives you a little gift that just knocks you over. This summer, I became enthralled with sunsets. I believed God was giving them to me as a special gift of His presence and His goodness; His light and His magnificence. It was as if He was saying: "Look what I can do!" And I would say, "Wow," shake my head and ask, "Who am I that you would show me Your glory in this way?" I began to wonder what my life would be like if I never missed another sunset for as long as I live. And then I thought about clouds and Chicago and how I could go months without seeing a sunset unless I flew somewhere. That would get expensive. So, I committed that I will always take note of any sunset that God presents for me to see. And I will always thank Him for the wonderful gift.
Here are ten from 2010 that made me say: "Wow, God. Thank you for that."
