God’s Bounty

by Open Eyes  

When I return home after church I pass this nectarine tree, bowed down with fruit. The bright red nectarines lift my spirit and make me thankful for God’s abundance. They have been red for several weeks. I don’t know why they are so red well before harvest time, but I know I am blessed. One of my lifelong goals from childhood has been to understand how everything works. I guess I don’t have to know everything.

About Open Eyes

I moved to the Community of Jesus in 1977 with my wife and three middle-school children. Now I am 72 and my children are middle aged. I am grateful for my two grandchildren living next door. My PhD in physics led to a career in aviation safety that continues to the present, although at a reduced level of involvement. Surrounded by computers in my home office, I am also part of the team that supports the Community's computer network. I enjoy gardening, both in my yard and in the Community's vineyard. I love to see God's hand in everything around me. I teach high school chemistry for home school and am continually astounded at what God has created from less than 100 elements--the chemist's view (and only three elementary particles--the physicist's view). Although I am slowing down physically, I find God continually providing me with new challenges.
