I say Him in the red and yellow flowers, tree buds breaking open, and a deep posing for me, the majestic sight of blue jays looking for food, the awesome sight of the brilliant redheaded pileated woodpeckers, the new green grass, the blue of the sky, contracted with the deeper azure of Lake Superior, the peace of the Valley of Silence, a meandering butterfly, the scampering squirrel, the rustling breeze, and the warmth of the sun.
Earlier in the day I recognized Him in the breaking of the bread of the Eucharist, as did those disciples on their way to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35), and in my Sisters, friends, guests, graduates, strangers, and in my brothers and sisters in Iraq, Africa, Afghanistan, Middle East, and along the southern part of the Mississippi River . . .
