Aloha Most Iridescent God!
I suppose You would be just as happy with “Good Day,” God. But there is something about this photo, which I took this afternoon, that makes me want to adorn my greeting with something extra — some small attempt to acknowledge Your Glory.
I am sitting here with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat wondering “What is Man that You are Mindful of us?” How is it that we humans have been given even this limited awareness of YOU? How indeed!
Glimpses of You are Humbling, God. My sitting here and daring to talk with You — is because of what I have been taught and experienced of Your Nature. Your Nature that welcomes each one of us — as if we were the Only One.
Oh, God! We humans Judge and Rank and Compare. Aah, but You — You go after the one lamb that is lost — searching until she is found — then carry her back in Your Arms. That is how You carried me through our daughter Patty’s illness and death. And that is how You carry me now.
I am sitting here now within Your Compassionate Presence. Needing You. Needing to set my life within You and Your Love. Your Love that only wants to Love and Befriend us. Endlessly continuing Your Loving Pursuit of each one of us. Longing to comfort us and carry us home. And at some point, carry us back to Our Heavenly Home.
