walking on water

The day after Easter I woke to one of those dawns that has to speak for itself.

It started slowly.

IMG_2836I was longing for coffee and room service hadn’t opened yet.  I thought the dawn was over.  So with nothing else to do, I kept watching without expectation.  The sky pinked.

Entranced, I kept watching. Beams of light shot out from behind the clouds.

IMG_2859Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, the light triangulated.  I looked around.  Was I the only one watching this?  I began to get overwhelmed.  Was God putting on a light show for me alone?  Come to me, God promises, and I will show you great and wonderful things you do not know.

IMG_2886I stopped texting phone photos to daughter and boyfriend and kept my real camera fixed on the light.  It was changing by the second now, and if I’d taken my eyes off it I might have missed something.  I drew closer.

IMG_2945The heavens were telling the glory of God.

One thought on “walking on water

  1. Astounding, Caroline– sublime.
    …a gorgeous reminder that all we have to do is be silent and open our eyes and ears (and inner ears and eyes) and the most glorious gifts are given, in such lavish abundance…. And we need to put away our iPhones for a while! which you did, with perfect awareness (I, too, love to email photos from the moment I’m in, and there’s a good time for that..) But this was an unfolding of seraphic dimensions! Thank you so much for this.
