A Summer Stroll Around The Neighborhood

Six months ago I took winter pics shown here

So now here is the same walk this morning

And He Knew He Had Found Life

He looked down at the brightly glowing eyes
Filled with magnificent wonder
New life in the small gentle hand reaching
Reaching up for comfort and hope
And he knew he had found love

He marveled at the intricate complexity
Felt the elaborate texture pressing his fingertips
Heard the whispered secrets of swaying branches
Tasted the aroma of the gentle blooms
And he understood the magnificent perfection

His awe inspired gaze of the great expanse
Lungs filling with the touch of the eternal
Exulting in his own smallness
Wonderment at so great a treasure
And he knew he had found life

Deuteronomy 6:6-9 A Translation

These words, matters, and causes I charge you with this day shall be the center of your life, a part of all your thoughts and feelings. By constant repetition and persistence you shall sharpen your children’s and grandchildren’s minds with my words. When you are sitting as a judge among your family you shall arrange these words to build up your family. You shall declare these words when you walk through the course of your life, when you rest, when you commune with your wife, and when you rise up and strengthen yourself to succeed. These words shall clothe you as a sign of your power. You should wear them like a guard wrapped around your mind. And you shall record and inscribe them in a prominent and conspicuous place on your household(family). These words shall act as a gatekeeper making you think about and judging everything that comes to your family.
