What's It All About?

It's all too easy for days to pass without reflection. It's my hope that through a greater active awareness on each day, that I will be able to consider God's presence in my life and in the world around me. Writing has always been a way for me to round up my thoughts. This blog seems like a good place to park those thoughts for my own benefit as well as the benefit of others. Please take a moment to read what I have written, to offer comments, and to share the ideas with others.

My Buddy The Wind...

As I look out the window this morning I can see the clouds moving along the skyline and the trees swaying in the wind. The wind is both a blessing and a curse this time of year. It certainly helps to cool things down but it is an added layer of disaster for people fighting fires. 

As I was taking my walk earlier this week I started to really listen to the wind. It sort of kept me company as I continued to make my way up the trail. Maybe it is too much reading of John Muir's adventures again, but I felt like the wind was an actual entity sort of talking with me as I walked along. I wondered if it was a divine voice spurring me on, suggesting that I look around and notice things and to remember to be aware of God's continual presence. A pleasant and comforting idea I think.

Hope everyone has had a good week. Thanks for reading and commenting.
