I think on these things . . .

“There is not a form that lives in the world, but is a window cloven through the blank darkness of nothingness, to let us look into the heart, and feeling, and nature of God . . .This world is not merely a thing which God hath made subjecting it to laws; but it is an expression of the thought, the feeling, the heart of God Himself.”

“The faces of some flowers lead me back to the heart of God, and as His child I hope I feel, in my lowly degree, what He felt when, brooding over them, He said, ‘They are good,’ that is, ‘They are what I mean.’ ”

“The people of God in Isaiah’s day had starved their imagination by looking on the face of idols, and Isaiah made them look up at the heavens –

 – that is, he made them begin to use their imagination aright.  Nature to a saint is sacramental.  If we are children of God, we have a tremendous treasure in Nature.  In every wind that blows, in every night and day of the year, in every sign of the sky, in every blossoming and in every withering of the earth, there is a real coming of God to us if we will simply use our starved imagination to realize it.”

  1. Wow, what powerful thoughts to meditate on! In the light of the disasters in Japan, I’ve been praying much today. I am thankful too, for your messages today on your blog, reminding us of God’s power and glory and how we might realize it in what we see around us and in each of our very beings. Thank you for your new post, Kathy

I would love to hear from you--share your thoughts!
