At a time of need, alone by the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, a friend of mine started a journey that led her to a greater fellowship with God. On reading her post, I responded:
A few years ago, I sent a someone a picture of the mountains outside my back door:
(it was winter, so the mountains were snow covered, but I think you get the point)
The person I sent the photo to responded, “You’re SO lucky – you get to see God every day.”
Since I am an inveterate smart ass, I replied, “We ALL have the opportunity to see God everyday. We just have to open our eyes and open our hearts.”
The wonders of God are all around us. The motto of my home state, Michigan, is “Si Quæris Peninsulam Amœnam Circumspice” which means “If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you.” The corollary doesn’t translate as nicely to Latin, so I’ll stick to English:
If you want to see God, open your eyes and look about you!!
