God in the detail

Hectic, scratchy, all over the place kinda day. Late afternoon, in a
desperate hurry I came flying around the corner into the kitchen. Stopped
dead in my tracks. Beautiful. Was the orchid in the afternoon light on the
kitchen table. Was just what I needed. Broad smile. Only after that was I
able to notice the very first frogs of the coming spring, also that - at
last - there's movement & sound in the coming-to-life winter garden...
crickets chirping tonight, also moths on the backdoor screen. After the long
silence of winter I'm relieved. God is in the detail.

Aaargh - I was to be forward and ask you so many questions about your later posts, but I won't. However, I'm glad you found God in the details, because that's where I believe He resides. I read your blog often, but this is my first post. Have a stunning evening.
