Awakening a Keen Observer

Friday, March 31, 2006


This morning as I drove to Norman, OK for a Presbytery meeting to the East was a bank of clouds that were along the 'dry line' that crosses OK and often causes storms and trouble. But these were like billows of clouds like a wave of white coming stretching across the sky from north to south. Evenly layered but with layers with in the billows the height of it to give it some depth and form.
I thought of pictures I'd seen of the Tsunami and how it overwhelmed those watching and those who were surprised by it.
Then I thought of the mountain ranges I've seen in the US and India. The high peaks that rise out of the plains are stunning and always a surprise. What do we do with images of the power of nature, and the sky which reflects it at times. Have you ever seen a sky that looks like water on the sea? Clouds spaced here and there.

I remember as a child Susie and I would lie in the back yard and look up at the sky in Ohio and try and figure out what we saw in it. We spent a lot of time watching the skies. Dreaming as young girls.

Take time to dream. Give yourself a time to catch a breath. Do it as you sit on a porch, or walk by the river, or look out your window. Be thankful for your freedom to dream and listen to the Creator's call to you.

God abides
