Two things, one that the more time that you spend outdoors, being in nature, the better your senses get. The dominant human sense is eyesight, vision. Probably not true of, say forest animals who will rely more on smell or hearing. Imagine what HDT would have thought of the absolute racket all around him if he was alive today and Walden Pond was at the Selm Muir fishery. You can probably hear planes from there if you try hard enough, and certainly the A71. But I might try and make my olfactory sense the one to develop as a sensory aim this year. When in the woods, smell. I already try to hear more but usually have too many kids saying my name constantly or screaming.
The other thing is about God. The focus is God is all around us, revealing himself in the frosty January bush rather than the blazing one of Moses. But we all know that is nature providing the beauty here, not the design of a six day week god. And I’ve said this forever, beauty, amazement is right in front of us, at all times of the year. Dalavich looked amazing this morning. Let’s go back now.
