A Story by Kathy Van Kurin

Place of Peace. Life giving inspiration. We all need solitude and the opportunity to find God's Help, to seek answers and strength. How do you do this?

Fluffed fat extravagance

New Year’s Day has come and gone. Sitting in my treasured spot with umbrella booth of protection, Rain drops fall in extravagance. Terra Firma saturation rises in mists this early afternoon. Bog tree grove spreads in thankfulness, its vista holding Branches stretched out and up. Spacious room, where are the walls? Here is enough with the great pewter sky my ceiling. Everything here below is nurtured in life giving moisture.

 

 

 Aramaic bible in plain English, Psalm 50:11 know every bird of the sky and the animal of the wilderness is mine.

 

I sit in this place of peace with umbrella covering. Great deluge rain drop orchestra, a personal sonata plays like piano strains thrumming all around. . Fluffed fat- a water mist wonder- Little song birds boldly remain bulking their feathers, looking for seeds, bugs or worms, not shy of the wet curtain. Tufts of leaves poke out of the old d’êtres floor like porcupine quills, the little birds simply continue turning the surface in their quest for food.

 

Matthew 5:45: That Ye may be the children of your. Father which is in heaven: for he makes. His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

 

Grace’s cloak covers and shelters all. Nature’s place gives itself away. It is precious inclusion. No hiding from inner questions or inner ponderings. Solitude’s stillness gives way to imagination’s doorway as Design of life steps forward. I fall through my own soul.  Why does this place extend its hand, saying “come forward?” This raindrop reality holds me as we look into one another’s eyes? I begin to understand an inner place of peace not humanly spoken but of the rainbow multi colored voice of God’s love, saying “I will never leave you nor forsake you.

 

 

Job 12:7-9 New International Version (NIV)  “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you.Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?

 

 

An Hour wedge of time has given itself away. This soul lies as if saturated, rejuvenated. Why do I feel so privileged? Young spotted towhees flash their snowy white, striped tail feathers. Plain brown wren hides herself as always in nearby blackberry hedge.  Sweet trills give her presence away. Oh the ducks rejoice in nearby pond. They race in splashing frenzy. Oh delight. Must I leave here; Gather umbrella, books, pack? Adieu, dear sweet place. I shall return.   We will meet again. For God will once again be faithful to meet with me within this place of blessing. He loves us and wants us to love Him.

 

 

Psalm 84:1-3, how lovely is your dwelling place, LORD Almighty!
 2 My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself where she may have her young�" a place near your altar   Lord Almighty, my King and my God.

dearest Kathy... I adore all the birds in the "pewter sky".
I love the poetry in the Bible, and appreciate your pen as
it speaks of passages that are close to my heart. Of course,
God in his infinite mercy, watches the Sparrow and I know he watches me.
Bless you and keep you as you enjoy the beauty of earth and sky.
truly with love, Pat

I like this quite a bit Kathy ... it speaks to me in so many ways. The first thing is the raid, I love it, if it's raining i"ll be outside just watching and listening, almost like you can hear God whisper.
Your choice of bible verses worked very well and are refreshing to see, especially in this climate of distrust and anger.

Well done. Take care ... be safe

Beautiful. A very strong percentage of all my writing, both poetry and prose, is spiritual in nature. As it should be, for God gave me life---and words to express the joy in it.

You've created such wonderfully thoughtful, kind and biblically sound reference points here, Kathy.. Yet you've offered your thoughts and faith with less of the academic and dogma than some might. This isn't a sermon but better: displays of love of and love from the beauty of the living world - especially more - those creatures that have always made for the heavens! Take it or leave it.. reader, as you will.

' .. little birds simply continue turning the surface in their quest for food.. ' whatever life and the world's condition is.. we need keep on searching, perhaps?
