By the River...

Sometimes it seems to me that I am living on the edges of life and I feel many things are passing by me. But today I thought that it might be different, it might be that I am living at the edges of death at the other side of that river but sometimes my feet slip in it and it might give me a sense of belonging to it and it might carry me, but fortunately I have people around me poking me asking me what I am doing down there and showing me His hands stretched to take me again to the shore.

This reminded me a well of the Psalm 137: 1-6 (ESV)

How Shall We Sing the Lord’s Song?

1 By the waters of Babylon,
there we sat down and wept,
when we remembered Zion.
2 On the willows there
we hung up our lyres.
3 For there our captors
required of us songs,
and our tormentors, mirth, saying,
“Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
4 How shall we sing the Lord’s song
in a foreign land?
5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget its skill!
6 Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth,
if I do not remember you,
if I do not set Jerusalem
above my highest joy!

So Many Legs!

I am always fascinated when I see my dog walking, in fact all dogs! How coordinate are their moves! Way too funny and cute how they go "in out in out in out"!

But to my pleasure, God created insects! They have so much more legs! It is amazing it is how they are so so synchronised! I imagine them doing a dance or treading lightly at a music they can only hear, and I believe even the best dancers and choreographers can not get to imitate their perfection even to the slightest degree- well except if it's Irish tap dancing!

This all fills me with wonder and gives me rest - to just watch my dog and these insects moving ! It is only a little story, a tiny  hint, of  how detailed and perfect God was when He created, how He set everything together in a very peaceful yet very organized way!
