When do you feel closest to God? February 21, 2012 Daily Reflection

Sunrise

These are the times when I feel closest to God:

  • When I pray with my children each night

 

  • In the silence of my empty church

 

  • In the kitchen when the window is open and I can hear my children playing tag

 

  • On my walk home from dropping the kids off to school before the busyness begins

 

  • ┬áIn the night as I drift off to sleep in open prayer

 

  • Every time I give a talk or lead a retreat

 

  • While sitting at my computer writing thoughts that were not mine but seem to be inspired by God

 

  • Every time I hear my children laughing and giggling together

 

  • Every time my husband says “I’m crazy about you

 

  • Each time my husband says my name

 

  • In the hugs and squeezes from my children

 

  • When my littlest one doesn’t want to let go of my hand

 

  • In the smile of my dad, husband, friends or children

 

  • During every sunrise and sunset I have ever seen

 

  • Every time I have been by the ocean

 

  • When the geese fly over my house each morning

 

  • When I get to take a break and sit in a comfy cozy chair

 

  • In the wind
  • In the beauty of all of nature especially the flowers, the sun and the sky
