The whole Christ-created world is

filled with so many wonders created

by our precious Savior and Lord.

Suddenly a cardinal appears from

the trees with a sprig of  holly pointing

to the soon to be joyous Christmas season.

Or a black and orange winged monarch

suddenly  floats by you with such a gentle

ease that it is indeed a divine and Heavenly

reminder of our Heavenly monarch who

delights in every detail of our lives including

bringing to His royal children glimpses and

metaphors of  earthly and eternal beauty.

And when we intentionally slow down and

truly look with eyes of faith, there will always be

all around us moment by moment reminders of our

Triune God’s  majestic, sovereign pen of beauty, love and grace.
