I snuck out the side door… my 7 kids faces pressed up against the glass. They know we look for Him everywhere…it’s their normal. They know He is speaking all the time…that even the rocks have the ability to cry out.
I hid low behind the pine tree.
The grass just wet enough to make stains on my knees inevitable. But to see what He was doing was my only thought.
I just want to see Him.
I want to look and see Him in everything and see Him everywhere …. to catch each glimpse and to hear Him talk to me wherever He speaks.
To reach out into each molecule of time presented to me and distill it all and hear Him.
So brand new jeans be forgotten as I crawled…. and I prayed…”Tell me what you want me to Hear…just tell me!”
” Just watch it….” I heard as I made a break for the sunflower garden and hid behind the tall stalks, completely hidden…. only 10 feet from it.
It was poised ….eyes intent and steady, strong muscles at the ready. Ready to claim the victory. The blue heron was still and sure of itself.
This blue heron which before a few weeks ago I wasn’t familiar with has now been following me everywhere…not just here but other places.. and even on errands.
My weight shifted and I caught myself…. and just like that it met my eye and lept into the air.
Victory lost at least for now…
Strong and Steady replaced with fight or flight….fear.
