“I reveal myself to you in so many ways and sometimes you choose to see me, other times you don’t. My beauty is all around you, but you must choose to see with the eyes of your spirit, of my Spirit in you.
I give you times of rest, but you must recognize and choose to receive them. This means that you lay your cares and your burdens down, you give them to me, you let them go. When you have surrendered them, I am free to move and work in your life and show you my blessing. Then you can experience my joy and my peace, and you will not fail to see the beauty in my creation wherever you are or wherever you go.”
