From Isaiah 64:
3 When you accomplished wonders beyond all our expectations;
when you came down, mountains quaked before you.
4 From ancient times,
no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any god but you
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him!
We stand and watch,
Calling our “Hosanna!” from among the crowd.
We fit in with the cheers
And worshipping ones.
We go back to work
And it is life as usual…
Fall asleep praying
Yet we come back to say again
We need your love and grace
To walk Your road
Of love and sacrifice and self-offering,
Knowing we are dim reflections
Of what the rocks and trees and flowers shout…
I just read the latest post by the” secular chaplain”, a lyrical plea to treasure nature. Funny thing, as different as your post and his may seem on the surface, I think they amount to similar hopes and a passion for life. His link is, http://secularchaplain.wordpress.com/2014/04/12/middle-groundingnessly/ What do you think? (He did not ask me to send this.) Sincerely, Karen
