Listen Mommy! God is talking in the trees!
It's a breezy, warm, sunny spring afternoon in Indiana. It's perfect. A little creek winds around the border of our propery on 2 sides and there are many, many trees along the banks. Days like this you can feel a bit lazy watching them sway in the breeze and listening to the rustling.
Riley stopped her playing long enough to tell me to listen - because God was talking in the trees. She then went on to explain that He had a lot to say today. As a matter of fact, He had a lot to say yesterday too, but not at recess. He was quiet at recess at school.
I Kings 19
11 The Lord said "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by." Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.13 When Elijah heard it he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.
