I'm a Little Bit Country

I'm not really country. I do have a Kenny Chesney CD I listened to...once. Also, I have a Willie Nelson CD. Not sure why.

This evening coming home from fantabulous, ultraspectacular art class, I was traveling down Hwy 80 when I spotted the full moon in my rearview mirror while the sun was in my eyes.

Before I knew it, I was working away on a song in my head with these lyrics. A Country (?) song with these lyrics. It's probably a good thing you can't hear what's in my head this second.

A full moon in my rear view mirror
The setting sun in my eyes
Creation's all around me singing
It doesn't tell any lies.

While He speaks to me of his glory
I look around with my heart
A full moon in my rearview mirror
The setting sun in my eyes.

God has always, always spoken to me through his creation and creativity. I remember sitting with my mom at the kitchen table when I was growing up and watching the birds. She taught me all the different kinds and how they hopped, or walked or sang.

One time I was especially bored and said in the annoyingly whiny voice that only a 13 year old girl can do, "I'm booooooooo-rrrrrrrr-ed!" My daddy asked me in all honesty how in the world I could be bored when there was one blade of grass to be explored. I looked at him with utter amazement (not the kind that invokes awe, but rather the kind of amazement that wonders if he has completely and totally gone off his rocker.)

But today, I realize I could never, ever be bored. God's creation is just so....

sesingMe too! I've been thinking for some time now that observing the beauty of nature, is like receiving little love notes from Him. In the anatomy of one simple bloom can I begin to grasp the magnificence of God. Which reminds me of Romans 1:18-20. "For the truth about God is known instinctively to them. God has put this knowledge in their hearts. From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see His invisable qualities-His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God." (nlt)

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and your song.:)
