“Some people, in order to discover God, read books. But there is a great book: the very appearance of created things. Look above you! Look below you! Read it. God, whom you want to discover, never wrote that book with ink. Instead He set before your eyes the things that He had made. Can you ask for a louder voice than that?” ` St. Augustine (354-430)
Morning Has Broken by Cat Stevens
I'm on a tight schedule this morning and decided I did not have time to journal, yet, as Augustine reminds me, there are different ways to connect with God other than reading a devotional book...or journalling.
Sometimes, I just need to slow my pace and notice how God has blessed my morning.
First, it was this Monarch resting and gathering strength for her long journey. I found an empty chrysalis nearby...what a gift.
Then, it was two bright flowers amid the more muted fall mums. Again, what a gift.
God's re-creation...of a new day!
Many Blessings ~ Sandi
