By Brad Campbell –
Just a thought to help start your week.
Especially when I have nothing pressing to do, I love to hop in my vehicle and ride. Doesn’t matter where, doesn’t matter why. Just ride and enjoy the scenery. I usually take my camera along, so I might stop here and there to snap a photo, or I might not. I just enjoy the ride.
This particular road pictured here is part of the historic Columbia River Highway in northern Oregon. That is a particularly beautiful ride, going along the mountainside past waterfalls, overlooks, and high above the river. Just God’s beauty everywhere.
I could sit in my chair at my desk staring at the computer screen while I work. That is productive. There’s nothing wrong with that. But if that’s all I do, then I’ve missed some great opportunities to see and be elsewhere.
Your “road” in the week ahead may have twists and turns, potholes and speed bumps. It may lead directly to where you expect, or it may not. Regardless of where the road of life takes you this week, I pray you take the time to focus on the God-given blessings that are passing you by.
Focus on what needs to be done, certainly. But look up, look out, get out, and appreciate His blessings. Take a ride.
Just a thought.
