A Moment in the Garden

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts. — Genesis 2:1

The Lord God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. — Genesis 2:8

Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four rivers. — Genesis 4:10

What a perfect ending to a week of vacation. What a perfect beginning to a new week. I woke up this morning and as I stepped out onto my porch the sun was just beginning to rise, the brook behind my house was running after the rainstorm last night, and the birds were just singing praises to the Lord. For a moment everything was right with the world. (I actually recorded a minute and 40 seconds of listening to all the beautiful sounds of creation but I unfortunately don’t know how to get that on to this website).

I thank God today for His beautiful creation and for electronics that allow me, at any time, to go back to the garden and know the tranquility, peace, contentment and presence of God, even if it is only for a moment.

I thank God for making His presence known to me this new day. May you experience a moment in the Garden and know the God who created it.

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon
