Faith in God is less apt to proceed from miracles than miracles from faith in God.
Buechner – Wishful Thinking
At this time of year I hear words about the miracle of Christ’s birth and I wonder. Most of haven’t seen heavenly hosts of angels or have we?
Maybe miracles, too, are the result of a different kind of faithful attentiveness.
The weather around here has been strange for November and December. The trees are bare and there is certainly a morning chill, but the days are noticeably warmer than they should be. I don’t know if that has anything to do with the majesty of the sky at dusk I witnessed the other day.
I took a picture; an inadequate representation of awe.
The hint of blue you see was not at all like that. It was bright and vibrant. A shade of blue I haven’t seen before rested beneath a faint orange ribbon visible between the dark tree branches. I cannot capture true light.
God speaking through the beauty of this day; if we only notice.
