I’m lying in the summer grass. Above me the sky appears as if the heavens are opening. Perhaps brilliant marshmallow clouds behold some greater being, a creator with vision and design? There has to be more to humanity than our randomness in the world. I think that we all have a place, a reason, a purpose. We aren’t accidental and are made specifically to be ‘us.’

It’s a relief the hot sun is blocked by the clouds but I can see the light peeking through as if the sky has provided me an inkling of celestial luminescence. But maybe the sky is only the sky and I’m personifying my beliefs and feelings? But then, maybe faith and the existence of God is demonstrated most superbly by the the earth, nature, and tiny glimpses of gloriousness seen lying in the grass.

    Dear Amanda,

    I’m a firm believer that our existence isn’t random. Well worded musings.

    Something about lying on the grass and staring at the sky really inspires this kind of deep philosophical thinking, doesn’t it? You captured it very well.

    Time spent in nature is very conducive to a pensive mood.

    Last summer I spent many hours flat on my back in my parent’s backyard watching clouds, listening to birds, rain or shine. You caught that feeling nicely.

      Thanks Alicia. I’m happy you could relate. We had some good teachers in elementary school and they would take us to the park. One of the activities we always did was cloud watching and imagining shapes of what they could be. Its very relaxing I think 🙂
