I’m standing in the kitchen and thinking go snap another picture.
Instead I settle on the view, a room filled with tall windows and panorama, a telephone doesn’t suffice, for the glory and purpose of me saying to me.
You are here.
“He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
Psalms 23:2-6 ESV
You get to experience this time.
This place. This grace.
This momentary hand of God that tells you, stop rushing. Stop trying to capture any more clearly than what I’m revealing gradually. The sunrise in the country with clouds sweeping up to the places you can’t see.
But you know are there.
Eternity is possible for those who believe. Life is more than earth and heaven more beautiful than we can conceive.
Stand still. Let that heart of yours rest easy. Now, the baby is rising. Open wide eyes and smile and exploration of every single crevice of her sweet life and pretty place.
Ready yourself! Life is worth discovering! You get to be an observer!
Now the grand sky has changed to pink. The window above the plant, the cookbook, the big letter of their last name offers me peace.
The color of love and peace.
I look down, look away and well, I could go on forever.
I’ll stop lest I start telling you about the birds, the trees, the wide open field shifting from brown to green.
The geese that are communicating.
Wherever you are today, I hope something captures your attention, something you can’t really capture, only believe.
