God’s Wonders

Under the open blue sky
I sit digesting the
fruits of God’s wonders –
Birds and insects fly free
engaged in the sounds of
their beings.

Gentle breezes blow –
Tree branches sway
in the movements
of the morning air.

It’s crisp out here
in this fresh a.m. beauty
Yes, splendid glory to view –
The magnificence of God
cannot be contained.

It’s such a joy to witness.
As the bible says, truly,
the earth is the Lord’s
and the fullness thereof.
Let everything that has breath
praise the Lord.

Certainly, God is the Master
of creation and the Master
of our fate.

Sitting under the open sky, I marvel at the changes that occur in its coloring and cloud formations. The blue sky is a canvas for the birds in flight. They fly in symmetry, flapping their wings, and soaring rhythmically in the air. Playfully, the birds frolic in contentment as they thrive in what God so generously provides. Ah! What captivating beauty on display. I embrace the pleasure of the views. There come moments that teach me as I watch and breathe in the awe of creation. One morning, I noticed that a dirty cup was floating in the water where ducks were swimming. They nonchalantly swam by the cup as if they didn’t even notice it.

God used those observances to reinforce to me that the “dirty cups” in my life shouldn’t cause me to forsake the rhythm of my journey. Truly, I sat there in appreciation for that deeply meaningful lesson learned from ducks andContinue reading »

Creation is full of stunning, magnificent and luxurious beauty. Yes, breathtaking displays of splendor. Humans, animals, mountains, trees, seas, flowers, meadows, springs and waterfalls meaningfully add to the landscape of this great planet earth. All that exists has roles to play, contributions to make and sharing to do. How many times have we read when animals were instrumental in saving lives? How many times have we learned that animals, with their keen senses, alerted people to potential danger? Yes, those are just two examples of roles assigned. Ah, and the vast selections of food choices: grapes, berries, melons, breads, vegetables — oh my! There’s much to satisfy and to delight our varied taste buds. The earth is abundant with the generous gifts of plentiful edibles. We even have foods that are proven to have healing properties. Our Father is so good to us. Psalm 34:8 – KJV, “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” No two people are alike; nope,Continue reading »
