These weekend features are to remind us of all the INGS of life. The Doing. The Nothing. The Speaking (of the Holy Spirit). The Listening (of our hearts).
Butterflies, blossoms, and bumble bees. This time of year brings such changes to our everyday scenery. The trees and underbrush are luxurious and full. Wild flowers poke their noses through the lushness, stretching their necks toward the sun. Whereas six months ago had us celebrating snow and winter fun, summer finds us soaking in the warmth and brightness of each day. As Amanda mentioned last weekend, we are in a season of LIGHT here in Alaska. Only teeny bits of darkness mark our nights. The birds tweet loud and often throughout our sleeping times, like they too feel the need to boisterously proclaim praise to the Creator, in spite of the late hour.
This weekend, may we see. Truly see. Breathing in the creativity of our Lord, in awe of this earthly landscape we call home. And as our eyes are opened, may we share this wonder with our children. Encouraging them to pause and observe the intricate veins of the leaves, the individual petals of each flower, the marvel of the bug world, the vastness of God’s love written on the very fingerprints of creation.
“Lord, give us eyes to see Your beauty and majesty in the big and the little.”
Enjoy your weekend, friends!
Until next time…
What INGs are you looking forward to this weekend? We’d love to hear what’s going on in your world.
