Serendipity Sunday: Seeing God.....

Serendipity: Making a delightful or unexpected discovery

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
~Genesis 1:1~

This weeks delightful discovery was actually a rediscovery while visiting a favorite volume of poetry, Heart Gifts, by Helen Steiner Rice. This poem expresses beautifully the fingerprint of God in His creation, evidence that He is with us at all times. Since I am revisiting a favorite poem, I thought I would illustrate it with a few favorite photos that I have taken, which have previously been featured here on my blog. Enjoy God's best blessings in your day today!

Everywhere Across the Lane You See God's
Face and Touch His Hand

~Helen Steiner Rice~

Each time you look up in the sky,
Or watch the fluffy clouds drift by,Or feel the sunshine warm and bright,Or watch the dark night turn to light,Or hear a bluebird gayly sing,Or see the winter turn to spring,Or stop to pick a daffodil,Or gather some violets on some hill...Or touch a leaf or see a tree,It's all God whispering, "This Is Me...
And I am Faith and I am Light
And in Me there shall be no night."

Blessings,
Miss Sandy

What nice illustrations for such a lovely poem. (One doesn't hear too much about Helen these days, but it wasn't so long ago when nearly everything in a Christian Bookstore echoed her name.)

Hope that you are feeling better soon...today!

Thank you for this wonderful post. Your photos so capture the poem thought. Together they are what I need just this moment as my thoughts were troubled and forgetful of His goodness and light.

God's creation has a way of reminding us and drawing us to thoughts of the awesome wonders and the Creator....and 'awesome' is not even a good enough word for His creation, and His mercy in our salvation!
