This may be the easiest to find, especially with our glorious fall this year. Not intrusions, but infusion of common grace. I’m amazed because everywhere I turn, I see beauty that’s out there and so accessible to me. Like their raison d’etre is for me to behold and enjoy. From the macro scale like these scenery at Banff National Park:
To the medium range, nature in our city streets:
To the micro scale. Last long weekend, I walked the Douglas Fir Trail. Again, I’m grateful for our urban parks:
And what an apt occasion, Thanksgiving Day, for me to discover all these minute wonders on the Trail. First, the colours:
Nature in the miniscule… the varieties of berries. Black against red:
Red against green:
And these pure whites like pearls in the undergrowth:
And the vibrant lives on two fallen twigs… I was mesmerized:
If we’re intruded by grace, I’m more than willing to give in.
