For the believer, everything in nature is a love-note from God! The real God is not impersonal but rather the great lover who chooses to create in order to convey ‘boundless affection’ for us. Sky, light, clouds, living things –the delicacy of the flower; the play of the wind on your cheek –these are the ‘caresses of God’. God is very close indeed: the big secret is that we walk the world of the divine all the time. Never to be awestruck is to miss out on the richness of life. Allow yourself to experience some of the caresses of God today!
