The Love of God All Around Us

My wife and I read these words as we sat near our open deck door on this refreshing and gorgeous summer morning

Psalm 104 NRSV

10  You make springs gush forth in the valleys;
they flow between the hills,
11  giving drink to every wild animal;
the wild asses quench their thirst.
12  By the streams the birds of the air have their habitation;
they sing among the branches.
13  From your lofty abode you water the mountains;
the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work.

Coming in through the door’s opening were sweet chirping sounds.  The trees awash in sun-lit greens had their usual hypnotic effect.

The words seemed a narration for everything we could sense plus everything we could not.  All creation seemed to be alive with evidence of God’s handiwork.  It is a heady thought, is it not, to see creation’s movements and loveliness as tangible signs of the love of God at work all around us.
