Noticing: 31 Days

noticing

Again and again, scripture tells us to look, to notice, to cast our eyes round this world of God’s creating and see what He has done. He is honored when we do. Noticing is worthwhile.

And so, lacking the time this year to tackle a more complicated theme, I’ve decided to spend this year’s 31-day blogging challenge noticing: in creation, in people, in the books I read, the things I hear. So often I forget to pay attention and let worlds of goodness slip by unrecognized. Here’s to a month of paying attention, of pausing, of sharing, even in the midst of busyness.

I invite you to come with me as I pay attention this month: press the “Subscribe” button on the left for new posts delivered to your inbox, or like my Facebook page where I share links to each new post, or just come back and visit when you feel like pausing for minute.

And if you want to do your own 31-day blogging challenge, or if you want to read some of the so-many other bloggers who are writing on so-many other topics, click here.
