GOD SPEAKS TO ME THROUGH CREATION. Throughout the year I watch God’s creation from my breakfast table. During the winter months, the birds visit my bird feeder and birdbath. The birds “neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns” (Matt. 6:26), yet they trust and do not worry. …
Take some time today to notice the beauty of God’s earth and to join its living mystery.
Creating God, you created the birds, the mushrooms, the sea monsters of the deep – and you created me. Open my eyes, my ears, and my senses today that I may become one with your living mystery. Amen.
– Beth A. Richardson
