Paying Attention to the Amazing

Last night, I wanted to go for a walk. It was sprinkling a bit and I knew thunderstorms were reported for later, but I wasn't going far so I decided to do it anyway.

There is something amazing about the world when it just begins to rain. The colors are different. The air that surrounds you is different.

I've been reading recently about the Eastern concept of awareness. Without going too deep it is mostly about just paying attention. Living in the moment that you are currently in.

This is a really hard thing to do.

But last night, on my walk, that was my focus. On God's presence in the very moment I was in.

Funny that His presence is there all the time, and though I'm aware of Him, I'm not always aware of Him.

It was a really, really wonderful walk.
