Out on the open road

ImageThere’s something soul settling about driving mile after mile on a highway (without a two year old, of course – that’s more of a nightmare).  Once we made it through the doldrums of never-ending Kansas, we were left speechless by the beauty of Colorado and Utah.  It was as if every mountain let us pass through, silently reminding us that the universe is large and we are small, that we hold but a moment of space in time, and that there is a reality much larger than the transition of our current moments.  It felt good to be small, to shrink into the vastness and to remember that my role is simply to pay attention to what God creates, not orchestrate it.

ImageAt present your business is to come and see.  Come and see.  He is endless.  Come and feed.” – C.S. Lewis
