Let Us Recognize All of God’s Creation

While I know myself as a creation of God, I am also obligated to realize and remember that everyone else and everything else are also God’s creation.
– May Angelou

Created so that We May Rejoice

I am settling into my new home after driving through some of the most beautiful places in the world. It is time to return to my blog, OPreach. But since I haven’t found my stride ye, and have a few trips on the horizon, I plan to post only once a week for a while – every Tuesday or Monday. Of course if some irresistible creative thought occurs to me, I may make an “extra” post now and again.

For now I would like to share some of the beauty I have experienced along the way.

There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.

So Much Has Been Given Me

Because I will be traveling cross-country, on my way to my new home in River Forest, Illinois, I am taking a break from OPreach for the month of August.

The Footsteps of the Wise

Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise; seek what they sought.
