Thanksgiving Day Blessings: Inspiration, Beauty in the Outdoors

Today I am thankful for inspiration especially in the beauty of the outdoors. I love looking out my window and seeing God’s handiwork: The field across from my house that is full of birds picking off the leftovers from the harvest. The field behind my house where the old barn stands amidst overgrown grass. The trees that change with the season and sway in the breeze. The cats quietly basking in the sun. The blue sky with streaks made from airplanes flying overhead. The dogs barking at the neighbor’s horses and running freely in the their lot in the backyard. Kids laughing and smiling as they play on a crisp fall day.


There is so much beauty around us and it is easy for us to take it for granted. Stop and look around today. Get inspired to write or paint or cook by all that is around you. Or just sit still and enjoy what God has blessed us with. Take it all in. Breathe in the glory of God and be thankful that he has given us a beautiful home!
