Cardinal and mockingbird, chipmunk and squirrel, butterfly and beetle, dogwood and fern.
Streams of water, cool of the shade. The world is alive. God’s creation.
Living things, plants and animals, rooted in the reality of God, uncluttered by sin, unworried by the world.
Things doing what they were made to do, living a life of unconscious trust while the world zooms all around.
Reminders of God’s life and presence, just off Friendly Avenue.
