Things That Make Me Think of God

I think most Christians (and other theists) God if they saw things like a cross, the Magen David, an icon of the Virgin Mary, etc. I do too, but I also think of God when I see various ordinary things in the world. There’s so much wonder, so much beauty, so much intricate detail that there *has* to be a creator. Here are some of those things:

-The leaves turning in the fall

-A clear night sky

-The reflection of a full moon on the ocean at low tide

-The reflection of a sunrise or sunset on the ocean at low tide

-The way the Oak Island bridge back home (NC) arches so that you can see the tops of the clouds driving over it in the morning

-The smell of gardenias or honeysuckles in the air

-The way the sky looks like it has been ‘painted’ at sunrise or sunset

-The way each of my brown tabby’s hairs has the colors that make up her patterns, as though God painted her. Also, the way she seems to know she’s beautiful. 🙂

-The way my husband looks at me

-The smell of the air right after a rain or the grass has been cut

-The fact that I’m alive and walking after breaking my pelvis in a car wreck

-Random acts of kindness and love in people

-My cat Slater’s beautiful green eyes

-The love and friendship my parents had for each other before my mother died

-The fact that my mother is no longer suffering and that I had the privilege of being her child

-The fact that my father got to talk to my brothers after having them taken away for 20+ years

-Any time I see a couple who have been married 40+ years and they still like each other

-The way my orange tabby Daniel Tiger sometimes has one black whisker and the others are white

-The patterns of a tortie cat and how no two have the same pattern

How about you?
