Today is the first of the Pyrenees, so we will enjoy the climbs and the strategies that come with the slopes and the valleys. Each team comes with different strengths and weaknesses, but they all have the same goal to make it over the mountains to the finish line in the least amount of time. The sprinters will pop off the back as the climbers will their bodies to go faster and faster.
Lord, we watch as they move through your handiwork. Up hills, around the bends, and down into the valleys below protect them as they go. Lord, help us all to slow down and enjoy the beauty around us each day. Thank you for what you have created. As we see your creation we praise you as our creator. Father thank you for the beauty we see this stage and the stages to come.
We pray in the name of Jesus our Creator.
