Sitting next to the edge of the pond, being serenaded by the crickets and the noise of the streets. I feel the coolness of the summer night and though the solitude is comforting I’m wishing for her, wanting to share this moment and space to create a memory, perhaps one or two. There’s nothing particularly special about this spot but her presence would make it feel exceptionally distinct. I’ve never sat in this place or listened to the sounds of the night like this before, never knowing this calmness, it covers you like the sweetness of wild clover and dew as it bathes the thick meadow grass early each summer morning. Five years I’ve spent looking, walking and driving past this spot and never stopped long enough to breathe it in. God’s majesty is all around me and as wonderful and beautiful as it is I would very much like to share it to her. Far away destinations are nice and memorable but often we can find treasures right out our front doors.
Psalm 104:1-6 “Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent. He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters; he makes the clouds his chariot; he rides on the wings of the wind; he makes his messengers winds, his ministers a flaming fire. He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved.”
~Blessings and Peace~
