“God gave us life and the six senses that include, “To be, To live with, To live by.” Sight is near the top of my list. Not only did He give us eyes to see with, but he took His paint brush and dipped it in a full spectrum of color, painting scenes for all occasions.
God thought of everything! Do you know how hard it is to be a committee of one? Just think of all the choices and decisions He had to make. There was no one to ask, “Which one do you like the best? Or “Do these match?”
I think that’s why God made woman to go with man. It gets lonely not having someone to share with and the enjoyment of hearing their opinion.
Wouldn’t it be awful to paint a beautiful picture, sing a song, or write a poem, and not have anyone to show it to, or have someone to listen to your thoughts?
I believe that God made the seasons just for us...Four times a year, he changes our panoramic view. Landscapes are bathed in a new regalia of undress for two seasons and then redressed for two more. Beauty can be found in and from the tiniest of objects up to the infinity of the heavenly sky. He knew that we’d need a change, a renewal. He knew we’d need something to write about.
Then there’s “Bonita Pond”...”God’s Bonita” here in our town.
I wrote about the pond in its glorious autumn colors, during the time of cold nights that turned the leaves to exciting golden yellow, orange and reds.
Later, I saw it in its Spring finery, with the freshness of first greens amid the tree tops and pastel colors of budding flowers that blanketed the banks.
A soft breeze rippled the water in the pond, catching the sunlight that gave it the color and excitement of highly polished silver in nature.
Then when I had a hard time catching my breath, and thinking that this beauty was in the state of perfection, a pair of swans lit on the water. The reflections of their white feathers seemed to make rainbows. I believe that swans are the birds that mate for life.
Then I heard the sound of a red bird that let the swans know they were welcome. The red bird was high in one of the willow trees.
Yes, the pond is named rightly, “Bonita,” which means pretty. It is muy Bonita, very pretty in any language.
How I love them all.”
“Thank you God, for all my family and friends.
They help me go forth and let me know where I’ve been.”
I’m so glad that God gave us the sixth sense. The one of “To BE,” the one of the ability to feel, the one that lets good endorphins run through our body and soul, as we share.
Enjoy today! We are making memories for tomorrow? We have sight, hearing, speech, touch, taste, and “To Be.”
Drive around or walk and see all the beauty shining under a sky of blue, or after a welcome rain. Listen to the wind, bird songs in the trees and the awaited-for sound of the car door closing, letting you know a loved one is home. Greet them with “I’m so glad to see you” and “I love you.” A hello hug or kiss gives a welcome like no other, each day. Supper cooking on the stove, stirs all the taste buds soon to be in use. All of these senses, gives us the energy “To Be,” and helps us make a difference in our wold today.
