romanced by God...

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way. - J.R.R. Tolkien I was romanced by my Savior today. As I laid on my back feeling the prickly grass on my skin, I was reminded of how His creation is ever praising and ever groaning, waiting eagerly, for Hope to come and rescue it from this world. I was romanced by the sun that was slowly setting, hitting the leaves just so they were transparent enough to see every beautiful detail. I was romanced by the pollen floating through the air, looking for a place to set down and blossom new life. I was even romanced by the wind moving through my hair reminding me that even though no one was around I was not alone, and never am. As a child of the King, I am romanced in every part of life...it simply takes one's eyes to be open: to see the leaf fluttering in the street after a long season attached to a tree, making its farewell to bid another Fall, or to see the wispy clouds making funny shapes as if to beckon me to use my imagination, and knowing full well, that every part of this creation was fashioned by my Savior's hand...he touched the leaf that fell to the ground...he whispered to the clouds to make them appear. Sometimes it is easier to see and to feel than other times, but it is always without fear and my heart always finds peace when I rest. Once again, I am reminded that though I have not seen Him, my heart knows Him so well. Soon and very soon My King is coming and I will be with the One I love...satisfied, my sin erased and shame forgotten. He's coming for me...and all I need to do is keep walking this road, and keep holding on. Love has found me.
