We have gone out for a walk: Into my garden last week

God is at home

it is we who have gone out for a walk

into our garden

on mossy paths

through scented bushes and flowers that nod as we pass,

trees with apricot shaded branches against deep blue sky

furry buds of Spring though the blue sky means cold tonight and the buds must sleep a while longer,

the silence beyond the sound is here – look beyond to explore the silence and awaken to the now

God is not then, there was, will be, can be.

God is

and the ‘is’ is you.

God is within you

and within each flower, bush and bee

insect, worm and bacteria,

all that live in your garden

God is within them too.

Look and look again

wonder at at their beauty

and relish their life for it is all too short and yet lives on in each seed and bulb and root

and winter will frost them

and spring will bring them again to live in sunshine and rain

Our life is all too short

and full of care and woe

and yet,

if,

for that moment,

we look beyond the silence

and know

we are here

in the now

and present in that now

then we are in God and God is within us and all of life
