In our fulltime RV years one of the slide-outs on our fifth wheel had floor to ceiling windows on all three sides in which two swiveling pedestal rocker/recliners we’re situated. Our priority when choosing a campsite was the best possible view, and dawn always found me in one of those recliners facing a majestic scene somewhere in America. After six and a half years on the road my memory files overflow with spectacular snapshots of God’s grandeur. The angels that Isaiah saw in the throne room of God speak loudly for me–” … the whole earth is full of his glory” (6:3). Some of you might recall reading my travel blog entitled “The Isaiah 6:3 Tour.”

In these more sedentary years  of codgerhood, alone with nature and nature’s God is still one of my very favorite venues at dawn. My sense of our Omnipresent God is so much stronger then. Pictured is one of those places at the halfway point of my dawn walk. I succumb to it’s invitation to rest more and more with the passing years, and I did again this day. It’s a great place to be inspired by great thoughts about our great God. He makes himself known through his creation. All that my eye beholds from that park bench points to our Creator. Amid all that divine general revelation, I called up God’s special revelation with a few taps on my smartphone and read his Word and meditated until, from behind the trees across the lake, the sun of righteousness rose with healing in its wings (Malachi 4:2) and soothed my arthritic old bones. I arose, anointed for another day the Lord has made, and ambled on home to my beloved. I am one blessed man.

See you in church.
