Look up!

I read a disturbing news story the other day. Evidently there is a rise in young people growing bone spurs at the base of the skull above the neck. The suspicion is that it is caused by them looking down at their cell phones too much. While the article specifically mentioned young people, I don't think constantly looking down at our cell phones is limited to one age group. I'm guilty of doing so at times. This article made me wonder how much of life and beauty and wonder we are missing while our heads are down, absorbed with the little screen in our hand. 

"Take a good look at God's wonders-they'll take your breath away." says Psalm 66:5 in The Message Bible. I thought of the above mentioned news article after reading this verse. God created this beautiful world for our enjoyment. How grievous it must be to His heart when we are so absorbed with anything-from our cell phones, to our "just keeping my nose to the grindstone" jobs, to life's problems that have our heads hanging down with heaviness-to notice all of the wonder He made for us.  (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, June 23rd, at Woman to Woman Ministries, where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)

still following,


  1. I am SO not surprised by the bone spur diagnosis. As to the beauty of nature .. Too many people have a clue as to its magnificent reality.
