One with Nature – June 25, 2011

11:05 am
As the sun warms the earth, on this beautiful summer day,
I become one with nature.

I am a spectator at a game of tag…two squirrels race around a tree, while two birds dart in and out of the trees above them.

The school of orange fish fellowship while nibbling on the unsuspecting bugs that land for a quick swim in the pond. Frogs croak contentedly as they sun themselves on the lily-pads nearby.

I have become a person of interest to a mob of tiny bees as I sit quietly on my blanket in the grass.

Birds call out to each other from tree to tree competing to see who can be the loudest.

The soft breeze energizes the leaves of the trees to serenade me with the sound of nature’s tambourines.

As the sun warms the earth, on this beautiful summer day, I realize how small I am as I become one with nature.

Psalm 50:11
New International Version (NIV)

I know every bird in the mountains, and the insects in the fields are mine.

Unconventional Mother’s Day

Infertility erases Mother’s Day from the calendar.

No handmade cards or hand-picked dandelions from the yard.

No messy kitchen or breakfast in bed.

No mother’s ring on my finger.


Infertility opens doors to nurture.

Instinctively the young know who will care for them.

Mother’s day has special meaning.

Psalm 119:76 (NIV)


 May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.
