Glorious

We are immersed in the awe and wonder of God.

Psalm 65:12-13

You adorn the year with your bounty; your paths drip with fruitful rain. The untilled meadows also drip; the hills are robed with joy.

God lavishly pours out unconditional Love in creating…giving from an endless reservoir of Grace.

Creation is on-going

But just like the seasons change…all things give back to their Creator in an endless cycle of giving and receiving.

For in all things…life-leads-to-death-leads-to-new-life

It seems that humans are the only created beings who have a choice whether to consciously take part in this Flow of giving-and-receiving.

We can instead choose to cling and hold onto God’s gifts…falsely believing they belong to us.

We can pretend that nothing has to change…that death does not have to be dealt with.

This path leads to a dead end.

The other choice…to freely share the gifts we’ve been given…leads to life.

This is the way that allows God’s creative flow to continue through us.

It allows us to participate in what Jesus called the “reign of God.”

May we all graciously share with others the amazing bounty that has been poured upon us…and may we be filled with the awe and wonder of it all!
