Sensory Blessings

Genesis 1:20  Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” So God created great sea creatures and every living things that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply, and fill the waters in the  seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 

I am so abundantly blessed. Not that I have a lot of wealth, but I have good health, have my senses, and appreciate them.

There are lovely smells – a cooking roast, cinnamon and apples, fresh fruit, roses, and so many things. And then I have my eyesight. Yes, I require corrective lenses for great vision, but then I get to admire the birds God has created, the other creatures I see at times—dolphins playing and surfing, an occasional whale, the brilliant flash of red as a male cardinal flits by, and today, the red and yellow detailing on the red winged blackbirds eating at the feeder.  There are gorgeous mountains, lovely oceans, blue skies that turn orange and lavender while the sun sets, and blaze with pink and orange as the sun rises.


And moving on to taste. Hmm, I appreciate yummy food. Appreciate it way too much. There are certainly not many foods I don’t like be it salty, sweet, vegetables, meat, and pizza, fresh European breads, and so much more.          


With all these senses I’m reminded how God has richly blessed my life; colors, nature, and more importantly wonderful friends and family. My life is rich. I am abundantly wealthy because I am so blessed.

Thank you God, for the blessings you’ve bestowed on ‘mybellaviews.’
