Psalm 36: 5-9
Creator God -
"Your steadfast love extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds."
On top of the highest mountain, in a little town in Southern France, where the wind bites sharp upon my face,
Your love is as close as I feel to the white fluffy clouds. I can almost touch them.
Beneath the waters of the sea lies a whole city of colorful creatures. Strange looking things. And even more deeper and deeper down. Your love reaches them.
Across the globe lives someone who does not look like me, talk like me, dress like me, or think like me. We will never meet. We will never know what the other struggles with or finds joy in. Your love reaches beyond our separation and difference.
Within each soul is a light. Deep within. It glows and brightens without our control. We can choose to love it or hate it. Strengthen it or ignore it. Tend to it or abuse it. Keep it or share it.
Yes, your love is the small light within the depths of our souls. And even it can extend to the heavens; to the clouds; to the sea creatures; to our neighbors around the world.
May we go today wherever your love takes us.
