It is now March. My search for him in the greenery has begun. I searched high and low in the marshes by the lake, in its coves and on its beaches. Sometimes he is elusive to me. There are times in my life where I am filled up with God so that everything I see is beautiful. There are other times, weary from life's journey, where the greatest of miracles cannot be seen. Perhaps I felt this way when I began my walk through the greenery today. Taking a long and deep breath I began anew. I looked with new awareness and with an open heart to be filled by His majesty. Though I didn't find my blue heron friend, I did find God's grace on awesome treetops, on green stems growing hidden by the winter's mud, and on the smallest of branches I saw tiny new buds beginning to appear. So here's to new beginnings, a spring like no other, and safe travels home to me, for my blue heron friend.
In God's Peace,
