God has place this wonderful creation in our hands. As U2 sings, "It's a beautiful day, don't let it slip away." We have this one life to live on this beautiful planet so enjoy these reflections on God, faith, life, and music. "After the flood all of the colors came out. It's a beautiful day."

Do you Marvel?

Library Park Lake Geneva,WI

Do you ever just marvel at the beauty of where we live?  Ziggy and I were walking by the lake when we sat down on the bench to pray and just gaze out in wonder (or in her case scope out all the other dogs and possible food or affection that could be received).  As we were sitting there a bird came in and hovered in front of a flower.  I was a bit puzzled because it was way too big to be a hummingbird and yet there it was suspended in front of this flower appearing to drink the nector.  And then it would land on the more substantial greenery before moving to the next flower.  This was all just feet away from Ziggy who hadn’t appeared to notice the two birds.  I was transfixed watching them and marveling at this beautiful place we get to live and how amazing is God’s creative hand.  As I was watching this my ipod began playing:  Sing Alleluia by City on a Hill
All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
Sun, moon and stars rejoice on high
Praise to the Lord of light divine

Sing alleluia, sing alleluia
Praise the Father above
Sing alleluia
Sing alleluia, sing alleluia
For His infinite love
Sing alleluia
In that moment you could hear creation singing.  I couldn’t help but thank God for the moment, for the marvels of creation.
