Muddy Tennis Shoes—and God Saw That It Was Good

Spring—season of glowing daffodils, pink blossoms—and mud.  Scraping tennis shoes is a ritual of the season. With stick or screwdriver in hand, I focus on every crevice, the sole a labyrinth demanding concentration. Scraped out dirt returns to the earth to take part in the growing of daffodils and pink blossoms. In the beginning God created the cycles and saw that it was very good.

Throughout the day notice the blessings of creations. With God say, “That’s good!”

    Amen! And is it not wonderful to participate in that co-creative response right along with our dear good God in saying, “That’s good!”
