Goodbye August


It Was a Very Short Summer

I’m ready for more beautiful sunny weather,
But the calendar says summer is ending
And autumn is on its way.

Are you ready??

Goodbye August

Ready or not –
September is on its way.
There’s no stopping it.

I See God


I see God

In the gorgeous sunset here in Ennis, MT last night

Ah yes, I see God in the sunsets …

Sunset from Gerrons
In the water and in reflections,

And … at work in me and my loved ones

Ernesto Cardenal, a Nicaraguan poet and priest wrote,
“Everything in nature has a trademark, God’s trademark:
the stripes on a shell
and the stripes on a zebra;
the grain of the wood
and the veins of the dry leaf;
the markings on the dragonfly’s wings
and the pattern of stars on a photographic plate;
the panther’s coat
and the epidermal cells of the lily petal;
the structure of atoms and galaxies.
All bear God’s fingerprints.”

Where do you see God’s fingerprints?
Where do you FEEL God?

I feel God

In the winds that blow

Practice seeing and feeling God.

The more you do,

The more you will.

Where do you see and feel God?

2 Corinthians 4:18
“We do not look at the things which are seen,
but at the things which are unseen.”

In reflecting on that scripture,
Erika Bentsen wrote in today’s Daily Guideposts,
“Dear Lord, please forgive us when we are tempted to doubt.
Just as leaves are stirred by unseen winds,
stir our hearts with the breath of Your real presence.”
Amen

God Bless You!

R = Rainbows


Day #18 in the A-Z series on “What Makes Me Happy?”

 

RAINBOWS


Whenever I see

A sweet rainbow in the sky

I remember God

Rainbows are God’s promise

To preserve us and this land

To keep us from total destruction

To hold us in His hand.

.

What could make me happier

Than sunshine after rain?

Sunshine that brings rainbows

And invites me to come out again?

.

“Come out” has brand new meaning

But it applies to one and all:

Be exactly who you’re made to be

As you live God’s rainbow call.

Sour high in love unending.

Keep the promises you make.

Let the Holy Spirit guide

Each venture that you take.

.

Be the promise of endurance.

Lift up others as you soar

To the heights set out before you.

Love your neighbors … love them more!
