On Psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the hills
in search of perspective.
Too often I forget to really see the hills, and the sky.

I lift my eyes from the road and the traffic before me
glancing out the car window for another view of scenery.
Is that building new? When did the trees start changing colors?

I lift my eyes from the computer screen--
this hypnotic rectangle--to clear my vision.
There are people to see, there is laughter to share.

My help and my hope come from the LORD
who shifts my perspective, who captures my imagination,
who rescues me daily by grabbing my attention.
