Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy. - Psalm 96:12 (NIV)
I enjoy walking my dog in a nearby neighborhood built around a series of small ponds surrounded by large trees and bushes. Often I listen to music on my portable music player as we walk.
One morning the battery died halfway through the first song. At first I was annoyed....
I will listen attentively for God’s wonders today.
Gratitude for the beauty of creation

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
