You Make Everything Glorious!

The last few weeks have been absolutely beautiful here.  I know I sound like a broken record, but after a really hot summer (hot according to Northwest Arkansas standards) I am so so thankful that God is blessing us with beautiful weather and dear dear friends to enjoy it with.
 We have been spending lots of time outside.  Lots!  After being cooped up for a lot of the summer it is wonderful to be outside!  
One of Cilla's favorite things to do lately has been having picnics!  She has loved picnics with one of her besties, Laci.  We have packed a lunch and snacks (of course) and headed to the park for the entire morning.  You just can't do that in July!
 I keep finding myself humming the David Crowder song, "Everything Glorious".  Not that I do not always feel that I serve a BIG God who does wonderful things for me and my family each and every day.  I believe, without a doubt, that God loves me beyond comprehension and blesses me far more than I deserve.  But, sometimes I feel like God gives us simple things, like beautiful weather, to remind us of how He cares about the little details in our lives, too!  And just to think that I am HIS and HE is mine.
Now that is worth singing about!
The day is brighter here with You
The night is lighter than its hue
Would lead me to believe
Which leads me to believe

You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
And I am Yours

My eyes are small but they have seen
the beauty of enormous things
Which leads me to believe
there's light enough to see that

You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
And I am Yours

That's funny...
Today I was running in the city by the water today and I was listening to "I Look To You" on my ipod (not really running music, I know).
But I looked at the tall buidings and the tiny leaves growing on the trees, and the big white clouds in the sky, and I got a bit overwhelmed thinking how large and incredible this world we live in is...

It is indeed the little things and the care and love God gives to even a leaf on a tree...imagine the love for us!
I am glad we both had wonderful days today!
