Loving you is so easy, dear Lord...Your love is everywhere, in everything...
When we gaze at the sun setting over the water, we see Your glory before us
Looking at an autumn leaf on the ground, we see Your care and attention to detail.
The tiniest spider exploring the bathtub permits us to see Your beauty
Looking up at the sky above us we see Your magnificence!
When waves crash against rocks and thunder rumbles and roars, we hear Your power
Each songbird conveys Your sweetness, each crow Your persistence, each goose in flight, Your determination
And on rare occasions we are filled with awe when You fly overhead as a swan!
We are thrilled by Your enigmatic presence as a kingfisher flashes past
Feeling the Earth beneath our feet we touch Your steadfastness
As the dogs and cats snuggle up close to us we feel Your devotion and warmth
Your warmth and passion are also felt as we stand beneath the midday sun
And as we walk in the wind and rain we feel Your amazing capacity to cleanse and refresh us
When we taste fresh fruits we delight in Your lusciousness
The taste of well-cooked vegetables fills us with Your nourishing love
And we taste Your natural sweetness in honey
As we walk amongst the roses we smell Your exquisite fragrance
Breathing the odours of the damp forest floor we are purified by You
As we enter a busy kitchen where a delicious meal is being prepared, we inhale your richness and abundance
We sniff your delicacy when we bring a quince to our nostrils
As we gaze into the eyes of our loved ones, You are there
As we put our arms around them, hugging closely and warmly, we are hugging You
As we hear their voices telling us "I love you", You are speaking to us.
When we park our bodies, close our eyes and totally withdraw our senses,
that is when it is even easier to love You
As we come within, deeper and deeper, we discover Your light and Your love
We remember that we too are Your light and Your love
We unite with You, our dearly beloved Lord.
