Delight!




The on-line dictionary I consulted for the meaning of DELIGHT says:
"a high degree of pleasure or enjoyment; joy; rapture"
as its first definition. 

I found "DELIGHT" in seeing the early morning sunlight on the fog, and the interesting affect of the shadows from the tree by the neighborhood duck pond.

The loud honking of the Canada geese drew my attention away from the fog to the brilliantly blue sky overhead.
Looking farther down the pond, I saw the reason for the commotion.  

In an earlier post I shared how the swans protect their turf,
and get very aggressive in their defensiveness.
(Click HERE if you missed that post.)
Seeing the beauty of God in nature delights me.

But what is so amazing to me is that God looks at me with delight!
The Psalmist said "For the LORD takes delight in his people..."

I guess that's kind of an echo of Genesis 1:31 which says,
"God saw all that he had made, and it was very good."

Someone else paraphrased it like this:
"God didn't make any junk!"
...And that includes you and me!
So if you're discouraged or beating yourself up,
I hope this encourages you today.
The Maker of the Universe thought He did a good job when He made us,
and He DELIGHTS in us!
