the “isness” of others

O Creator Lord,

let me feel the “isness” of things and people,seed starts baby bean

without resistance,

without trying to impose my own pattern upon them

or exploit them for selfish ends.

Let me welcome them, enjoy them,

value them, love them,

for what they are and for what they are becoming

through your creative love.

~George Appleton

Each of us is like a seed unfolding in the light of the Maker.  We grow, we pause, we Spring, we Winter.  May we remember today and every day to value the journey of all of God’s creatures.
