Journal: 5:00 a.m. - I just woke myself up snoring for the 2nd time in my life - so much for my "silent" retreat.
Before I turned on the light I saw the outline of a tree against the south window - very nice - but God's invitation to me to recognize and give thanks for that, see it as one of his many gifts, and to move into further communion with him? That seems too sweet, too...what's the theological term? Too much everything happens for me, for us, and is God telling us he loves us....The wind is blowing, that's God telling me he loves me? Or is it a reminder of God's love and care for us and the earth, a love that constantly exists, a reminder that he is always there to commune with?
