Of The Glory

Some say that in nature we experience God. To some degree that may be so; only the poet and a few scribes mark sounds that clutch the scene, for expression is elusive. God comprehension. Who can know it? Enduring beauty from His creative words.

A few days ago in a heavily forested Crestline canyon I watched late afternoon sun strike at gaps between limbs, then beam onto the apple-strewn floor of the ancient orchard. Wine brewed down there on the ground; its yeasty scent invaded our noses and the youngsters asked, “What’s that I smell?”

No doubt the beauty of the scene was of God, but how will it be when we stand in His presence? God. The Almighty. The Creator. Ezekiel knew, for on one ordinary day, he stood in the glory of God. No longer was it an ordinary day. No longer could he even stand on his feet.

Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face. . . chapter 3

Hasten the day. Come Lord Jesus.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

Oh, I believe with all my heart God can be felt through nature; His creation. We felt Him many times this past weekend. I would even go so far as to say we saw HIm, heard Him, and smelled Him too, through nature. 🙂
Beautiful photo, Sis. Buxton.
