Reflection awe has seized my spirit recently during the Lenten season. The sunrise reflection was on my morning walk Saturday and the other about 4 weeks ago on a get away day to a preservation area. Here is a great meditation on the awe & wonder challenge.
GOD’S PRESENCE IS REAL
The water may be murky and dirty –
Filled with vegetation that appears dead and lifeless –
Pausing and pondering I see
A perfect reflection of the world
Around, as well as above.
How is it I marvel
That what seems so imperfect and marred
Can yet reflect such beauty seemingly unmarred?
And then I am reminded –
My life is also an imperfect vessel –
One that is marred because of humanity –
Yet …….. yet…..
When I embrace the opportunity given
I too can be a reflection of God my Creator –
I can be in His presence and allow His presence in me
To be what others see, feel and experience –
God’s presence…..I choose to let it be reflected through me.
