Saint Andrew’s Calendar

Devotional Word…..

  

Where Do You See God?

This is where I see you Lord
In the blue jay that just landed on my deck
and then flew gracefully away.
In the majesty of the cedars, the beauty of the flowers,
the greenness of the grass.

I see you in the faces of my grandchildren and
all children everywhere.

I feel your presence at the communion rail on Sunday mornings
and when sharing “The Peace” with fellow parishioners.

I know you are there when a safe journey ends
or an illness is cured, or when a loved one is taken
from this life to be with You.

You fill my days with Your love
and my nights with Your peace.
From a heart full of thanksgiving I offer up my prayer of love.
Amen.
