Unexpected Delight

Living Fireworks -- a plant I didn't even like -- until the Light hit it.

Good Day, God!

This plant has a bulbous lump at the bottom of it’s trunk and I have never liked it. So, God, I was stunned when I saw it in the full sun — the light made it look like a living fireworks — albeit static.

I love unexpected sights. Could it be that’s why we love to travel, God? Seeing things that surprise and delight us? Actually, my ordinary routine world seems full enough of sights that delight.

In the middle of the week, my husband Kit, suggested that we go and look at the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in the Western Sky. We walked toward the park that’s behind us — scanning the sky. NOTHING!

Well, not nothing, there were lots of clouds. We stood and peered for several minutes. We did see Orion’s Belt overhead. (Anyone interested in just WHO Orion was can click here. But, that was it.

We turned to walk home. But, I slipped off the sidewalk and turned back for another look. There they were! They really did look like a pair of headlights coming toward us! I didn’t have a camera with me, God. I guess because I didn’t expect it to be so dramatic. I wish I had a photo that did them justice!

But, all of this is just to say Thank You, God! Thank You for all the interesting and delightful things in life.
