Poet Luci Shaw says God has given us two great books: The Bible and His Creation – and they talk about each other. It is finally gloriously June, and I’m biking in the Wisconsin woods, feeling a sweetness of connection to my Creator.
Right now the woods are covered with tiny blue Forget-Me-Nots. I took this picture for you, because those wildflowers whisper: “We toil not, neither do we spin – yet our heavenly Father cares for us.” And those “Forget-Me-Nots” remind me of this verse from Hosea:
“She went after her lovers, but me she forgot,”
declares the Lord.
Help me forget-You-not, Lord. Ravish me so I won’t go after other lovers. May I find my satisfaction in You.
How is creation speaking to you?
