Watching that made me think of my relationship with my creator. I don't go to church any more. Too many years of too much dissension among those who should be focusing on things other than what someone else isn't doing right. I found t difficult to have a peaceful relationship with God in such an environment, so I left and began reading and learning about all kinds of religions. What I found is that formal religion just doesn't work for me. Does that mean I "gave up" on God? Oh, far from it.
I've learned some pretty wonderful things in many religions that I incorporated into my own spiritual path. It is, perhaps, an odd mix, but it is all based in the love of God and in my understanding of the fabulous world he has give us. I see the world as a reminder of that relationship, and it is a daily blessing for me.
A while back I wrote about it. I posted a poem this morning on If Only I Could Find My Pen ..... When I reread it this morning, I felt a wonderful calm.
.... Life is beautiful !!!!
