Recently my dear friend Betty Lee came from Texas to lead a small group at the journey retreat. I was the lucky one who got to pick her up at the airport and spend some car time catching up on life. Now, if you have Betty and I together, there isn’t much (if any) silence. But this car ride was unique.
I have to admit that I don’t always see the beauty because I know right after this season comes winter. But as I drove with Betty, I realized that I want to squeal with delight (at least internally) at the beauty that I see every day. I am guessing there is even beauty to be found in the winter.
I wonder if you are a squealer when you are surrounded by beauty. Give it a try, it was a delightful ride that fall afternoon when I saw my surroundings through the eyes of a friend who delighted and squealed at God’s handiwork!
