Behind the scenes

But behind the scenes, we have people who work hard, like the man whose picture I happened to take. There were many of these workers, all moving about diligently to keep the plants healthy with their care, and the park clean with their sweeping of leaves and other tasks. So often we take for granted what we have, don’t we?

And the One who is really providing for us all the time is our Lord. The Master Creator knows best. Look at just some plants. Be in awe as you consider, if you can, the entire universe. AWESOME!


Master Creator

If the sky could be seen as a canvas, then one could truly say that the Master Creator never stops putting works of art for our viewing pleasure. How many lessons we take from the beautiful world that God has created and continues to create. It is marvellous! One needs only to look at one aspect, the clouds in the sky. I remember those Geography lessons rather vaguely for we had to study and give names to the different types of clouds. It was not my favourite subject and I did not pay much attention. Now, however, even without knowing the different names for the different kinds of clouds, I can appreciate their various formations.

Just look at how the blue sky, a perfect tone indeed,  has been dappled with so many ‘cotton candy’ fluffy balls which really are just moisture, waiting to nourish the dry earth? I could not resist taking a photo of this formation at the Centre for Ignatian Spirituality and Counselling. What a perfect day!

 Which child has not gazed upwards and opened his/her mouth in awe? Which one of us has not looked at a cloud formation and seen more than meets the eye? So it was with some delight that I learnt  just a couple of days ago from a friend that she was a member of a group of admirers who actually appreciated clouds. I was amused to learn that such an organisation existed, and yet, is it surprising? Perhaps not.

I may not be a member but I can certainly count myself as one who loves the beauty around. I see it with my eyes. I smell it with my nose. I hear it with my ears and with my mouth, I sing the praises of God, the Master Creator!
