We’ve counted them and named many of them, and we watch for them every day.
They bring a sense of wonder and awe of the Creator to me…their grace and freedom in the air are reminders that I own such as well, though grounded.
We often want to slow down and watch them as they hunt, glide, or just perch in regal posture overlooking their territories.
This usually elicits honks,taunts, and extended middle digits from those who have sped up behind us.
It frustrates Trey, but it saddens me…they have to get somewhere so fast that they miss the wonder of the journey.
I was reminded of that when I saw this video…
Now, that kind of piano playing is close to experiencing the Rapture for me.
Even if that wasn’t my preferred musical genre I would have loved to have been there to witness spontaneous brilliance in such a mundane setting.
Most of God’s best work is done that way…inexplicable interventions into the daily routines of life.
It’s easy to miss it.
Most of the time we are like the audience for this performance…focused on our tasks and destinations and oblivious to the work of God right in front of us.
We become like the man wearing his headphones and holding his sign…deaf and looking only one direction when joy was right behind him.
Worse yet, we can become so hardened that the grace birthed interruption to our routine annoys and irritates us… and we scorn the distractions that could heal us.
God is always with us…and often looking to show us His love and grace in nature and people alike in our day to day lives.
Look for Him.
Listen for the sound of His hands playing holy instruments.
I didn’t listen to the video for a week…I was too busy.
