I am a nature person,  I love to watch the sun rise, I love to watch it go down, I love to see the night lights and stand awed by the one who has made it all. Life is cheating me of these things, robbing me of the opportunity of worshipping the one who redeemed me all day long. So here’s what I’m going to do. I choose to step out of this mad race,  do things that are most important.  This totally reminds me of Apostle Paul’s call to me,  He said to not be so carried away with the present that I lose sight of what God is doing…….aye Sir! I hear you !
