An Extra’s Point Of View…

Today I was an extra in an extraordinary documentary, written and produced by God and Directed by Mother Nature.

The scene opens with the runner exiting the  condo’s drive on her way to run the reservoir route. Overhead and Osprey flies over with a fish in its talons. Looking to the right she sees Canada Geese and Swans floating aimlessly along the reservoir. The runner takes another corner when she notices a scent that reminds her of families dairy farm. To her left a heard of  Hereford graze lazily in the pasture. She is then overwhelmed to tears as she rounds the bend to witness a meadow with too many shades of green to count, bursting with golden buttercups, all juxtaposed against a vibrant blue sky. Out of the corner of her eye she spies a snapping turtle sunbathing on a piece of drift wood. Half way home, the scent of lilacs remind her of her grandmother. A cardinal wakes her from her nostalgia and she continues on toward home.

Over come with tears of joy she turns into the condo’s drive aware of the perfection of God and feeling very blessed…
