A heart-stopping moment: I was driving home from the Jesuit Center the other day when a large deer darted right in front of the car. Awesome!
A heart-expanding moment: I was praying Monday morning when I looked out across the newly harvested cornfield and witnessed a very BIG buck leap across the field, antlers held high. Awesome!
Two events, awesome in their own way. What is it about deer that lure us into observing creation with a more careful and contemplative eye?
So much of God’s creation we take for granted. As fall continues to unfold before our very eyes in the splendor and majesty of color … in the animals seeking food before winter approaches … in the whispers of wind and colder breezes … let’s be attentive. Look … listen … smell … taste … feel … in a word: SAVOR. Beauty is everywhere!
