Have You Lost Your Senses?
Have we as adults gotten so busy that we forget to discover the sights, smells, textures and tastes around us? Do we stop to smell the roses, or the plumeria, or gardenia that is blooming nearby? Do we notice the rainbow in the sky after a rain on our drive to work? Do we hear the doves cooing outside our window in the morning as we awaken? Do we remember the touch of the velvety skin of an infant child, the wonder of smelling their little feet, the touch of their little fingers wrapped around ours in a tight grip of love? Do we remember hearing the giggling and squealing of little girls at play? Do we ever sit in silence and tune our ears to hear the still small voice of our Lord?
God as our Creator gave us a world to thoroughly enjoy and He gave us the gift of senses that we might enjoy it to the fullest. Let's take the time to exercise the wonderful gifts of touch, smell, sight, hearing and taste. God will communicate to you through the wonder of His world around you if you just take the time to find your senses once again! You can communicate to God by giving Him thanks each day as you discover anew the wonders around you!
Enjoy the wonders of your day!
