Worth getting up for.

You know those days you just want to stay in bed a little longer, not quite ready to face the day?

Well, this makes it all worth getting out from the warm comfort of the bed covers, putting both feet on the ground and knowing the devil has to be saying, "Crap, she's up." :)

Have you ever seen anything like it? This was my view this morning as I got out the door and it took my breath away. God's beauty just amazes me.

Sometimes we get so busy and focused on the circumstances and the craziness of life and that we totally miss the beauty of it all. It's there, you just have to look hard enough! 

I just needed this reminder today and maybe you do too!

Have a great Monday!

At a beautiful sky, my sister always says "God's showing off!" It is great when we take the time to notice and appreciate it!
Happy Monday :)

Yes, that is absolutely beautiful! And worth getting up for!! I'm dragging today after being up so early with the storms in our area. But what's a little loss of sleep when we are all okay?! :)

Have a great day!

I have come to realzie that sometimes when I am running late or stuck in city traffic I want to say 100% of the time I am, I end up seeing an AMAZING sky that God wanted me to see on purpose.
I have that new spin on it.
Your family is still in my thoughts and prayers!
