494. Every dew-drop and rain-drop had a whole heaven within it. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

How cunningly nature hides 
every
wrinkle of her inconceivable antiquity
under roses and violets and morning dew.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Earth’s liquid jewelry, wrought of air.
The dew ‘tis of the tears which stars weep, sweet with joy.

Angels in the early morning
may be seen the dews among.
Stooping, plucking, smiling, flying.
Do the buds belong to them?
~Emily Dickinson

That breath you just took; it was a gift! The day that lies before you; it’s a gift!  And it’s a unique gift, a new creation of God’s ageless story. Twenty four hours a day, 7 days a week, His promise of renewal is delightfully visible especially early in the day when everything sparkles with the kind of magic that sometimes can be seen in the dew on roses and other things.

It’s easy to believe in magic when you’re young.
Anything you couldn’t explain was magic then.
It didn’t matter if it was science or a fairy tale.
Electricity and elves were both infinitely mysterious
and equally possible–elves probably more so.
~Charles de Lint

I may no longer be young but while birds call to one another and bees busily work, it’s easy still for me to imagine that garden fairies are blessing the flowers and sprinkling them with dew because they  glisten and shine like Yahweh’s glory.  And it is when I sense His Presence in the light and  the sweet aromas that arise from the flowers and the soil that I fall in love with the Lord of Life all over again.

Listen, O heavens, and I will speak; hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants, I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! ~Deuteronomy 32:1-3    ✝

Thank you, Lord, for my piece of Eden here on a small portion of the Texas prairie and for Your redeeming work on the cross at Calvary.

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the message and you are so right. Tomorrow brings a promise I’ve been hungering for for some time. It’s the autumnal equinox and therefore this is the last day of summer. Hooooooooray! Hugs, N ❤

  2. First of all, you are still young – we all are, we are children – it’s only our protective cover here on earth that ages! Now that we have that straight … 🙂 Such loveliness you share – you bring such beauty to the world merely by sharing the words you choose to share, and stories you choose to tell. Natalie you are an angel. ❤ 🙂 Kimberly

    • I’m so glad we got that straight, oh wise muse! I’m so glad you appreciate and enjoy my posts; it’s the way I try to praise God for all the beauty He shares with me. An angel?! Hmmmm??? Only if I’m one who loses her halo at times!
      Hee hee!!! Methinks you, dear Kimberly, are an “angel unawares” who has crossed my path. Love and hugs, N
