In union with creation
As I sat here looking out the window at the night sky, just still light enough to see cloud formations, I noticed a giant footprint in the sky, but before I could type this sentence, it disappeared. What if I hadn’t looked out at that precise moment? I would have missed an opportunity to smile at creation—actually in union with creation, because everything in the universe is interrelated.
I had so many opportunities today to smile with creation. As I got into the car this morning I saw five deer running through the meadow. Going out the driveway, I was stopped by three huge wild turkeys. A half mile down the road strutted eight “teenage” wild turkeys, perhaps of the same fowl family. Then I saw what I thought were flares. Instead they were ordinary road signs on which the red sun was beaming. Awareness of the present moment opens up delight.
My awareness of this present moment as I type this is savoring a nighttime breeze coming in off the cornfield outside my apartment. It’s been so humid here today — and I admit I find it hard to find the divine in humidity — so the breeze is savored big time. Yes, it opens up delight as I head for slumber.
Hi Susan-what would help the humidity is a lovely swim in the brine( that’s the
Ocean) perhaps the hot tub wouldn’t quite work there!
Take care and enjoy the gentle breeze and the Lord’s presence
