Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love.
When we visit Washington, D. C., last May, my husband, Danny, and I decide to see the National Cathedral on the one day he is not in business meetings. And, what an awe-inspiring place it is!
From the vaulted ceilings soaring heavenward to the breathtaking stained glass to the many varied and beautifully adorned chapels, the cathedral holds wonder upon wonder for our eyes to behold.
And, seemingly endless places to sit or kneel or stand. To meditate, amidst the grandeur, on the unfailing and steadfast love of God.
But, the National Cathedral, as grand and glorious as it is, cannot hold a candle to the place where I retreat, more than once a day, to pray and meditate upon God's unending love for me. My towering Cathedral of Green . .
Where do you go to meditate upon the unfailing love of God?
Will you pray with me?
No structure, no matter how magnificent, Father, can match the glory and majesty of Your marvelous creation. May we take time each day to celebrate and thank You for this world, this Eden, You have given us. Help us to be good stewards of the earth. Amen.
