Hidden in Plain Sight

 
This morning I heard a new Sunday School teacher saying to the students that we adults seem to have forgotten what it is to just look at the passing clouds and maybe see an angel in them — it’s a child’s gift — finding God in anything. Seven hours later I was getting out of my car and I saw a rainbow. It was one of those days where it drizzles but the essence of sun still makes it through the clouds. And there it was, a full rainbow with both ends disappearing somewhere in somebody’s house. And I’m ashamed to say I walked by.  Oh, I saw it and commented and got some other people looking, but I didn’t really see it.  I was on to the next thing, focused on getting my crazy “to-do” list done. It occurs to me now, that’s exactly what the teacher was saying this morning — God is everywhere, we just forget to look.

About Renaissance Girl

I moved to the Community with my family in 1988 when I was 10 - which gives away my current age! I am now a solemnly professed member - I work at Paraclete Press, the publishing arm of the Community and I love my job! I also sing in the choir Gloriæ Dei Cantores, and am a member of Elements Theatre Company and Spirit of America Band. As a Docent for the Church of the Transfiguration, I get to discover new things about the church every time I share it with someone else. When I'm not doing one of those activities, I love to spend time with my dog or my "extended family". There's a lot of variety in my life which keeps me energized - and I'm learning how to be more in the moment so whether I'm at a rehearsal, or making dinner in the kitchen with 5 girls, they all get 100% of me!
