The red rugged cliffs, the golden aspens, the noble green pines, the gentle flowing valleys, the natural serpentine corridors for us to traverse…
I’m breath-taken and rendered so breathless with the gorgeous Creation that surrounds us that my body’s autonomic systems are taking over
and I am breathing with ease – with joyous tears welling.
Let us breathe friends, let us breathe. Let us notice the beauty.
Let us appreciate it. Let us surrender to it. Let us be it.And if we find ourselves so breathless because of it,
let us trust that we are beautifully made to breathe anyway.…. and yes, let’s vote anyway too.
“Jesus often withdrew into the lonely places in the wilderness to pray.” Luke 5:16.
