"I speak to you continually; 
through sights, sounds, thoughts, impressions, Scripture. 
There is no limit to the variety of ways I can communicate with you.  ... 
When you set out to find Me in a day, 
you discover that the world is vibrantly alive with My Presence."
 (Jesus Calling)

"The heavens are Yours, and the earth is Yours; 
everything in the world is Yours - 
You created it all." 
(Psalm 89:11)

We found Him everyday, everywhere, during our three-month Sabbatical/Time Off - and now, into the new month of August, I continue to watch for His gifts, everyday, everywhere ...
