Search me O God

The Lenten reading was Psalm 139 - one of my favorites. I've already highlighted most of the verses in my Bible. It reminds me that you know everything about me God, and that nothing I do surprises you. I'm so grateful for that familiarity Lord. I so need you to know my mind and my spirit.

I wish I were more perfect God. I wish I had your eyes and your mind and your spirit. I struggle to get through my days with your will in mind. But God, you already know that, don't you?

Thank you for knowing my heart God. Thank you for the intimate knowledge you have of my being. And most of all, thank you thank you for loving me anyway.

The snow is beautiful God. And it always, always makes me praise you. Because it's like watching an artist create a beautiful painting, a little touch here, a bit more there - I'm watching you highlight the perfection of your creation and cause us all to gasp in awe of it. I'm astouded by your glory.

As the snow falls it's difficult to take my eyes off it and get anything done. I spend a good deal of my time looking out the window. Because I feel closer to you and get the sense that I'm participating in a miracle. I may be only an observer, but I'm totally encompassed by it all.

Thank you God for the snow. And for the incredible world you've given us.
