Yesterday morning I saw three things of awe:
a beaver scooted across the road near the Hominy Creek trailhead
my first neighborhood hummingbird whirred circles around the pink bushy blooming Rose of Sharon
a bright yellow finch (was it the same one that came through last August?) perched first on the purple coneflower and then danced across Ripley Street to the neighbor’s sunflowers
I’ve long thought that the kingdom of God is nearer than we think -
that most of the time we miss it because it comes in pieces, and we are not paying attention.
