Walking with Wonder
I stop on the stepping stones to an awareness of the great I AM, and I, a molecule in the vast universe. The key turns slowly unlocking treasures as God’s breath kisses me and I swing into the rhythm of the dance of love. Searching for Jesus, I find him walking patiently beside me listening, understanding, opening my eyes, as a cocktail of thoughts scampers by in confusion. A moment of grace lights up the mountain top of my transfiguration till I walk down from a cloud of unknowing into an ordinary world. The cocooning caterpillar takes flight as a fragile butterfly waving its wings in a whirlwind of wonder, and the thread of memory is now a melody played on a violin of sweet sounds descending and ascending on currents of air.
