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 join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
