The intersection just outside my window always seems to be busy. Horns honk, sirens wail and a number of people are always running late. Nothing is relaxed but always in a rush or actions done out of anxiousness. I see the stop signs that no one obeys and the litter scattered along the sidewalk. I also see the trees blossoming, the dog walkers, and the families strolling to preschool. Calm and genteelness exists along side the anxiety and noise. These remind me that God is ever present, especially when there are things that do not represent the love that God preaches. Even if I don’t find it in the scenery, then I will try find it in the people and myself.
