I stood on the ground and looked up at the dark sky, lit by the moon that reflects the Sun's rays that pierced through the clouds. The stars shone brightly and persistently. I tried to imagine what lies beyond the distance my human eyes could take me, I tried to absorb the magnitude of the limitless sky, I tried to contain the magnificence of the infinitely Magnificent One who made them all, both seen and unseen. I could only try; I could not fully imagine, nor fully absorb, let alone contain all that has come to be in all of God's wonderful creation. And I stood there on the ground, struck in awe, overpowered in the splendor. At that moment, I "touched" God in His creation. Have you "touched" creation today? Have you connected with God?
