Weekly Photo Challenge: Background

Do you reverence creation? Or is it only background? God might think differently – God would kneel down.

Is the sight or the sound of the red winged bird just background?
Is the sight or the sound of the red winged bird just background?



I think God might be a little prejudiced. 
For once He asked me to join Him on a walk
through this world,

and we gazed into every heart on this earth,
and I noticed He lingered a bit longer
before any face that was

and before any eyes that were

And sometimes when we passed
a soul in worship

God too would kneel down.

I have come to learn: God
adores His

– St. Francis of Assisi, Love Poems From God, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

  1. beautiful contrast of color–and it is this creation, when I can stop long enough to truly see it and take it in, that is the blessing and that is such a visual hug from my Heavenly Father–the Creator. Thank you for sharing—julie

  2. The photo compelled me to open this post before I saw you were it’s author. The different layers of colour and focus give it a real 3D effect and a real sence of being there, feeling the warmth and smells of the day. And that poem – who else could walk with God in this way – beautiful!!!

    • Hi. I hope Keith sees this. I’m not sure how it works when someone reblogs. Anyway, I’m glad you enjoyed it, Shayna. Please come back to OPreach again! Peace, Pat
