I see God
In the morning sunrise
In the rainbow after rain
In the blossoms of springtime
In the smiles of children (and other friends, too, of course)
In the gorgeous sunset here in Ennis, MT last night
Ah yes, I see God in the sunsets …
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
In a baby’s touch
In every genuine heart-felt hug
In the unconditional love of our four-legged furry friends
I feel God in captured dreams
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.”
God Bless You!
See you tomorrow
