in our World Today

Help us really to see your creation, our natural surrounding. Illumine our hearts by the rays of the sun and the silvery light of the moon. Calm us, so that we experience the feeling of divine creative energy in nature all around us and within us as well.

As sunlight on the path leads us up the slope to the top of the trail, help us to allow the breath of your creation to guide us to life's goal.

Old Azalea, a senior citizen of plants, well-cared-for heritage, watered, pruned and tended by a previous generation, it shows its glory year after year. Having defied rain, snow and drought, it this very morning awakened again to morning light.

Twelve hours later, in a shaft of evening sunlight and joined by an angel of mercy, it displays a welcome on the porch of my (our) home, prepared to show its colors tomorrow and on other days and in years yet to come.

In how many ways can we sense the hand of the Creator in the special sights we occasionally encounter? May the Creator calm us, guide us, to life's goal.

Come walk with me into the forest's blessed abode,
To see the wondrous beauty the Earth has bestowed;
We'll bask in the surreal splendor that surrounds us,
And listen to nature composing the forest's grand opus,
As sounds of whispering trees and burbling streams,
Send our minds wandering into a poet's lovely dreams.

We'll walk where sunlight sets the forest's leaves aglow,
Weaving open paths to dapple golden light on all below;
Where trees shade us from summer heat and harsh rays,
Freeing our minds so we can see Mother Nature's ways,
Of creating nurturing sanctuaries for life dwelling there,
To shield its tender wards from storms too hard to bear.

DR- I absolutely love Belinda's poetry ...I hope it's in keeping with your thoughts on Nature and the communication we all have with the creator we walk through the majesty of it all.
Best Regards,
