When Morning Comes

In this place the rhythms of nature seed a longing for the wild into senses of my life virtually undiscovered. The rapids storming into the lake a mile away, dozens of various song-birds and throaty frogs line the shores with an orchestrated sound menagerie. Two bald eagles chirping nearby at their nest and a distant loon haunting the fog accent the occasional animal or fish lunging and splashing the still waters. I can only sit and let my eyes drink in what is before me as my ears interpret what is beyond. I can only whisper “wow” words to the Creator as emotions run with the moment. And I was there.

A part of me will always be there. Those seeds have grown some mighty roots. The longing for beauty to behold as well as the understanding that somehow there could be a sense of beauty in me because I have beheld and it has taken root. I will admit to being changed by this wilderness. I just hope I can pass some of this on to you however a thin slice you might see.

What changes you?

  1. Gary, I can see, and feel, and hear the growth in your writing; the desired result of your hard work and effort: great job. your ability to capture and express what you are experienceing and bringing your audience to that expereience has obviously expanded thru the mentoring and your personal study!!!! thanks for letting God grow you thru His creation which sings to your soul and of which you are a tool of by His grace displaying His wonders.


    1. what changes me is God’s gift of grace in giving us the privilege and responsibility of making choices. Choices to pray instead of fret or curse or blame, choices to love instead of stew or harbor and hate, choices to forgive instead of scheming revenge or blaming others. what changes me is the lives of those i have the privilege of rubbing shoulders with, knowing and being know by others who are changing, growing, moving forward.


      1. Chris you have captured the essence of change. Nature is but a tool for us to be silent and God can get our attention to matters of the heart. Thank you for your comments.


  2. Gary, good stuff. I enjoy reading your thought provoking words, I agree, you are doing an excellent job of writing your emotions with clarity. God has gifted and bless you!
