Let Us Pause

As we begin this new year, let us pause to praise God for the wonders of creation. Let us stand in grateful awe before the dazzling colors of a rose garden or the majestic shapes of Yosemite's stone monuments. Let us take delight in a sunset and marvel over the sparkling beauty of a star-studded sky. Let us gaze admiringly at a favorite stretch of beach and look fondly at the face of someone long loved. These "wonder-filled" acts are simple ways of worshiping God, the generous Source of everything. (Wilkie Au in The Upper Room Disciplines, 4 Jan 2006)
