"I will meditate on Your precepts
And regard Your ways.
I shall delight in Your statutes;
I shall not forget Your word."
Yesterday the sunshine and unusually warm fall temperatures beckoned to me, so I grabbed my camera and went for a walk. Along the way I photographed the autumn splendor. When I came to an empty park bench, I rested and prayed. Sitting there in the sun I thought of how busy I get with daily activities, and how pleasant it is to stop what I'm doing and quiet my soul. When I do, Jesus joins me and I delight in recalling and meditating on His word. I can't help but wonder how many times the Lord is sitting on the bench, wishing I'd show up.
