Divine Nature


Divine Nature
©2011 Susan Noyes Anderson

Proof of divinity is all around.

God's handiwork transcends His mystery.

We hear His voice in every sacred sound:

the trill of birds, the pounding of the sea.

His whisper reaches us in sunrise stillness,

when all the earth awakens from her sleep.

Betimes He warns us with an eagle's shrillness,

or speaks to us in rumblings, soft and deep.

We see His radiance in sunset glory;

His Light enlivens moon and stars and sun.

Each shining lake that shimmers tells His story.

Each mountaintop proclaims Him as the One.

We feel His tender touch in gentle breezes

that muss our hair or cool a rosy cheek.

His every gift to us is balm that eases,

to know Him is the sustenance we seek.

And yet the proud heart is not counted wise.

Only the humble and the reverent see.

Look for Him in a newborn baby's eyes,

then find Him in your own divinity.

Beautiful photos!

Well, I am just totally blown away. The pictures are fantastic, the poem even better and the music is perfect. What more could one want. I had to read it over a couple of times after my initial reading and I just seemed to get more out of each time. Do I dare ask you how long it took you to do this poem?

And the pictures.......they are just amazing. Just feasting my eyes on all natures beauty depicted in these photographs just makes me wish I could visit those places in person. After viewing such beauty, how can anyone deny God?

Dixie Mom said...

I know when I'm hiking I feel closer to the knowledge of my own divine nature. I just wish I could take that knowledge home with me.:)
I hope to feel it this Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Savior.

Exquisite photos and words...last fall when we were returning from Alaska, we spent the night in Cutbank Montana and a group of us saw the most magnificent sunset with lenticular cloud formations any of us had ever seen. The rays of light came down from Heaven and one of the men said, how can anyone not believe in a Higher Power - we were witnessing just how Divine Nature is.
