Innova in Lucem: Renewal in the Cycles of Light

And be renewed in the spirit of your mind.
     ------Ephesians 4:23
Droplets, Reflection, Flower, Plant
The fire of dawn
Places us on
A precipice 
Of life renewed. 
Ignited in 
A drop of dew.
Rekindling the spirit
Our Genesis anew.
  -------G. Hill

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
------Genesis: 1:3
Drops, Dewdrop, Blade Of Grass
Natura in minima maxima.
Nature is the greatest in the smallest things.
A few minutes of contemplation, bathed in the light of the tiniest of miracles can give sparkle to the whole day. 
        ------G. Hill

There comes a time when nature’s soft voice of renewal seems distant.  It happens.  The world gets too loud, too big, too heavy.  Even bird chatter can sound like raucous screeching. Anxiety can seep in and we fall out of step. 

I recall walking alone in my own orbit.  Planet Gloria.   Peace and comfort seem to evaporate like the morning mist in the rising sun.  I felt misaligned, less connected, and out of tune.  Naturalist John Muir says that nature is ever cycling, in the business of creating and pulling down in one endless song. I am part of this cycle, so I journeyed on . . . searching for my place in creation and found renewal in the simplicity of the morning dew. 

 If nature pulls down, she also recreates . . . . continually in her dawn.
         ------G. Hill

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds the world.
—–John Muir.
Everything in our world, even a drop of dew, is a microcosm of the universe.
         — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Joy is finding the holy in the small and the sacred in the everyday.
