tonight we were watching a show that intrigues me - full of interesting scientific proposals and social innuendos. the show is called eleventh hour.
one of the characters said this (forgive my lack of exact quote - i should've written it down right away!), and it spoke of wisdom:
"one of the best things about nature is its ability to put our self-importance into perspective."
as i've been finding myself drawn into Papa's vast creation outdoors, i find this to be extremely true, and one of the pleasant side-effects of putting aside all the "need-to-do's" in favor of "dancing with my Father" outdoors. becoming engrossed in the variety of colorations on ladybugs' backs has a way of taking the focus off me and putting me in the place of "the one thing that is needed..." sitting at His feet.
