Happy Easter from the Grieb Ranch!
“In the midst of the busyness and stresses of our days, there are patches of beauty all around us, glimpses of God’s goodness that we catch here and there along the way. These are the places in the walls of the universe where heaven is breaking through—if only we will take the time to stop and to reflect upon God’s love for us . . . Sometimes in life we must hurry. But overall, life should be less hurrying and more noticing. Life is the present. Life is being aware; it is seeing God’s love breaking through. It is turning aside to the miracle of something like a sunrise. Something transitory, yet symbolic of the eternity that awaits us.” Taken from “Sunrise” David Roper/Our Daily Bread
For us here at Grieb Ranch, it is turning aside to the miracle of a beautiful sunrise over the ranch, appreciating the grass and mustard covered hills after several years of drought, caring for a new healthy grandchild, and enjoying the distraction of little chicks hatching as I type.
Most of all though, it is taking time to celebrate the miracle of our risen Savior. May we take to heart Ps. 119:18
“Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.”
