Fields of Beauty and Peace

Saturday morning, visiting with dad at his new home, I took a walk around the neighborhood to get my bearings. The street is quiet, with wide sidewalks that should be great for wheelchair excursions. It was a cool morning, in the 50’s.

I was in not so much a prayerful mode as meditative, and in a way I guess I was kind of looking for a sign of some sort when I turned a corner and realized that part of the development backed up to a farm.

The view took my breath away.

I’m not sure that it was a sign, but I am absolutely convinced that God speaks beauty, and presence, and promise, and encouragement through creation.

And maybe that is enough sometimes to get through another day.

Peace – always – DEREK
