We kept a respectful distance and moved slowly and quietly while walking with the elk, but still, I felt a profound oneness with nature. We weren’t afraid of them, and they weren’t afraid of us.
Later, I told Caleb I thought that hour among the elk was like a small sample of heaven. There was nothing but peacefulness and exquisite beauty. With the honesty of a child, Caleb replied, “I didn’t know that it was a special time.”
His response made me wonder how I miss everyday special times. Did I see that recent spectacular sunset? Did I watch to see the springtime flowers burst into radiant blooms?
I don’t want to wait for next year’s vacation to take time to appreciate God’s wonders. I don’t want to get lost in busyness and miss the special times.
How about you?
