It's days like today that remind me we are part of God's sacred handiwork. As I look around this creation I'm reminded that this was all prepared with us in mind. I wonder if we realize that all things have been created so that we may have joyful and abundant lives. Or do we see creation first of all as a sacramental reality, a sacred space where God reveals to us the immense beauty of the Divine?
I am reminded that we are not the owner of this creation. We, like creation, are sacred. But when we relate to all that surrounds us as creation by the same God who created us and as the place where God appears to us and calls us to worship and adoration, then we are able to recognize the sacred quality of all God's handiwork.
We are God's workmanship created by the Divine, to live abundantly in all creation. It's amazing to consider we are the result of dust meeting the Divine.
How wonderful to realize we are all part of God's amazing plan.
Stay in God's grip!
