345. Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious. ~Ruth Reichl


Today and every day may you see the “endlessly delicious” beauty in earth, sky, and sea. May you hear it in the song of the birds, in the wildness of the wind, in the splendor of starry nights. May you smell it in the fruiting and flowering of the earth. May you touch it in earth’s textures and in your human interactions. May you taste it in the food that comes from the fertility of the earth and from Creation’s life giving waters. May all these senses keep your child-like wonder and sense of awe alive and well. And may they teach you something about God’s ways and inspire reverence and gratitude for His gifts and blessings.

One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple. ~Psalm 27:4 ✝

Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you save, you heal, you restore, and you reveal Your Father’s heart to us! You have captured me with grace and I’m caught in Your infinite embrace!

  1. sounds so truly exhilarating –I’m ready!!! 🙂
    and yes, I’d love to pull up a chair—and I’d like to sit for hours marveling in God’s handiwork along with your own, in your most beautiful garden and yard!!
    much, much love—-cookie


  2. I drank in the delicious beauty of God’s wonderful creation yesterday morning. I woke to a clear sky, and the sun rising through a light mist. I got dressed quickly, made a brew (and took it with me) and grabbed my camera. Then I set out across the fields. Ninety minutes, 3.5 miles and two wet feet later I felt thoroughly refreshed and completely overwhelmed by experiencing the signature of God in everything (except the rubbish left by the roadside). I wish I could have recorded the birdsong to go with the photographs I took.

    Thank you Natalie. Blessings. David
