From The Chaplain's Desk
September 2013 Chaplain's Corner

By Barbara C. Kulisch

  SEPTEMBER 5, 2013 --

The man whispered, “God, speak to me,” and a meadowlark sang. But the man did not hear.

So the man yelled, “God, speak to me,” and the thunder rolled across the sky. But the man did not listen.

The man looked around and said, “God, let me see you,” and a star shimed birghtly. But the man did not see.

And the man shouted, “God show me a miracle,” and a life was born. But the man did not notice.

So the man cried out in despair. “Touch me God, and let me know you are here.” Whereupon God reached down and touched the man, but the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

I found this to be a great reminder that God is always around us, in the little and simple things that we take for granted....even in our electronic age. So I would like to add one more.

The man cried, “God, I need your help,” and an e-mail arrived, reaching out with good news and encouragement. But the man deleted it and continued crying.

Don’t miss out on a blessing because it isn’t packaged the way that you expect. Remember that Miracles come in all shapes and sizes~and happen to those who believe and recognize them.

Have a beautiful day!

May God Bless You Richly
