When I witness the goodwill of others, I see YOU.
When I look up into the beauty of the ever-changing sky, I see YOU, in all your glory.
Once when at the airport, I witnessed two young girls meet for the first time, both from very different backgrounds and heritage, and they loved on each other without judgement, prejudice, or divide, I saw YOU.
When I opened my blinds this morning and saw a world of white, I rejoiced at the beauty, and I saw YOU.
I see YOU in the faces of the people you have strategically placed in my life, and I am grateful.
When my little man, Jack, looks up to me in the sweetest of innocence and calls me Gamma Shark, because he cannot pronounce my name, I see YOU.
When I watch and listen to my children as they interact with each other, I see YOU.
When I ask for help and you unlock doors, I see YOU.
When a girlfriend texts to see how I am doing and then drops off a bag of flu meds and a can of chicken soup, I see YOU.
I see YOU in planted fields as you water and care for them.
When I don’t know how I’m going to make this paycheck cover until the next…but always manage…I see YOU.
When I walk on a beaten pathway, away from the busyness of life, I see YOU, in all of your creation.
Standing on the coast of Maine, feeling the power of the waves as they beat against the rocks, I see YOU.
I see YOU when sky is darkened in anger and when it is a crisp, crystal blue.
I see YOU in every change of season and in every sunrise and sunset.
When my Nyx won’t leave my side because she knows I’m ill, I see YOU.
I see YOU in everyday. In the good days and in the bad.
And in my darkest hours, when there is no one to comfort me, I see YOU.
God is ever-present. He’s here and there. Everywhere. He’s in the whisper of the wind, and in every snowflake that alights on your eyelashes. You cannot miss God. His presence is bold and it is beautiful.
1 The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad!
2 Clouds and thick darkness are all around him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him and burns up his adversaries all around.
4 His lightnings light up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
5 The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.
7 All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols; worship him, all you gods!
8 Zion hears and is glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoice, because of your judgments, O Lord.
9 For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.
10 O you who love the Lord, hate evil. He preserves the lives of his saints; he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!
Have a blessed day. Be safe, warm, and healthy. ♥️
