Spiritual Journey Thursday - LOOK

The bloggers at Spiritual Journey Thursday
are writing about the spiritual focus of the community's 
One Little Words.  This week, we are writing about
 Justin's word, LOOK.

I love the words of this verse in Psalms 5:3.  (Maybe because I'm a morning person, and I can do anything in the morning with the Lord's help.  However, I turn into Chicken Little every evening by 9).

"My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. "

Trees, one of my favorites of God's creations, encourage me to look up.  Last summer I paused on a walk with a friend to look up.

As I look at the majesty of God's creations, I'm encouraged to praise and acknowledge his hand in all things.

"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hill, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord which made heaven and earth."  (Psalms 121:1-2)

Last year my OLW was savor.  Anytime I pause to savor what's around me, it includes looking.  When I look around me, I'm awed by the majesty of God's creations.


  1. I love the tree picture. I love looking at God's awesome creation too. Thanks for sharing your inspiration.

  2. You chose such beautiful images to illustrate the OLW, LOOK! Trees are one of my favorite of God's creations, too!

  3. Ramona, your images and Scripture words are a perfect morning meditation for me. I would like to suggest that you create a winter whispering for the gallery with photos that allow you to savor what is around you.

  4. I love the word savor - what a perfect OLW. I need to remember that - maybe add it to my listen for this year. Two little words! Thanks for sharing.
