The God Who made the wole world and everything in it
is the Lord of the land and the sky . . .
This God is the One who gives
life, breath, and everything else to people.
Acts 17: 24 - 25
Great are the works of the LORD,
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
Psalm 111: 2
While waiting for my husband,
who was getting a business permit,
I stolled around with my camera
and caught sight of this beautiful tree
and the calico stray
basking in the warmth of the sun.
My favorite moment with you:
". . . we were rushing to get to a radio interview [in San Francisco],
so I was race-walking along the piers at Fort Mason,
and you were dreamily watching the seagulls and pelicans
and scanning the water for seals.
I was begging you to hurry it up,
but at the same time
I remember dropping a book,
and my papers were all disorganized,
and I wa trying to shove stuff back
into my Fibber McGee purse,
and you stopped.
You said to me sternly,
"Mom, you'e moving too fast,
and you're carrying too much."
I still think, to this day,
that that explains what's going on
whenever I start to get crazy."

May you take time this week to slow down.
enjoy God's beauty,
and patiently 'be' with a child'
or someone at any age
who needs your time.
Blessings as you begin your week.
