Devine Geography

…who by understanding made the heavens,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
who spread out the earth on the waters,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
who made the great lights,
for his steadfast love endures forever. (Psalm 136)

Today my wife and I had an opportunity to be serenaded by birds, squirrels, and a few dogs in the distance.

We watched a downy woodpecker scamper up a tree quick as sound and tap out a few drum roles.

I lit a fire and burnt some dead-fall as well as some pruning's. We watched it die down to where the coals came alive and flashed orange and peach-pink.

Overhead, aspen leaves shimmied and high spruce boughs swayed.

There is something reverent about time spent with trees. We lose touch with the earth to our detriment, physical and psychological detriment. Perhaps we even lose touch with a dimension of God. The God who shows us steadfast love through the things God created.
