Declaring the Glory of God

I was searching through photos of the universe and found an interesting thing: the stars and galaxies look alive, as though they're living creatures, with blood coursing through veins and hearts beating. Some of the intricacies of shape and color looked almost womb-like.

I have a friend who had a "near death" experience, the kind you read about or hear on TV, and since then she sees things in a much different way. She says we have no idea how much God is vibrating within living things on earth. She can't look at a tree without seeing vibrant, supernatural life running through it.

We live in an amazing place, this universe. It is completely incomprehensible to me in my current state. I am a dimensionally challenged creature, and what is around me and above me contains far more dimensions than I can imagine. (And I have a pretty good imagination! :)

I am convinced, absolutely convinced, that when we get beyond this earthbound life and are able to see the whole of creation, we'll understand how absolutely connected everything is. And we'll see our Creator's thumbprint on every piece of work.

I am always in awe of the way animals can sense so many things that we are not aware of. They are participants in a world that we cannot know, while living here on this same earth. This reality always makes me wonder how much more is here that we are not aware of...God and the angels, Our Lord watching over us and filling our hearts with His graces. Do the animals know these things too? The universe is a wondrous creation, how blessed we are.

I agree. Heaven will open our eyes to much that we never knew existed.

Yes, and I am glad you are listening to your friend. I know someone like that ... and the light of the Lord shines all around her. DIEU TE BENISSE!!!

Anne: Yes... You said it so beautifully! I have always wondered if when the birds sing (or the flowers bloom, etc.) they are in a conscious state of worshiping God; either way, their actions give Him glory. So much to ponder!
