O Taste and See

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is he that trusteth in Him (Proverb 34:8 KJV).

I enjoy being outside around God’s creation. Especially during the early morning hours when the world is quiet. When I focus on my Creator I can’t help but create.

One morning, I captured the sunshine just as it peeked through the trees. What a display of colors!

Early morning light

Filters through the trees

Creation beckons

Come, taste and see

The Lord’s faithfulness

Around you displayed

Mercies unfailing

Hope for this day

And patience, experience; and experience, hope. Romans 5:4

It’s hard to be patient when learning new things or dealing with health issues. I tend to have more patience with others than I do with myself.

Yet, Paul reminds us that through our patience we learn. And when looking back, we discover our prior learning offers hope for the future.

I found this quote when preparing for this month’s theme and thought I’d share it with you. I’ve it posted where I can see it every day. I hope it encourages you too!
