“Yes, goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the LORD’s house as long as I live.”
Psalms 23:6 CEB
I wonder a lot these days about nature and it’s inhabitants. My sister, a psychologist said to me this week? “As we age I imagine most of us turn to nature.”
I had an unusual experience this am. I decided to trim my hair a bit which I have been doing this past year due to the Covid pandemic.
My inner voice said, “throw your cut hair in the wind.” I opened the door and let the gentle breeze take the cut hair. I sat a few minutes on my porch rocking and looked to see what I might see. Awee! This little Gracie was less than 2 ft away from me gathering the curly matted cut hair and taking it under the hedge within inches. Why? I wondered!
I don’t really know why? I could google but I haven’t. Why? Because nature is teaching me to listen more closely to the Holy Spirit which is a lesson my Mother taught me. I heard a scripture that also makes me wonder!
“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.”—Proverbs 3:27 (NRSV)
