Today is Friday and I am once again linking up with others at Five Minute Friday…

When given a word to write about, sometimes too many thoughts come to mind, but I want to encompass the whole world in one thought: all of mankind is in a search.


When I set myself apart from God, which is easy to do, I am on the search for what I want or think I need. I do not see God in the flesh, though he is in me and all around me. Think of waking and knowing you slept all night without consciously breathing. He’s taking care of that and you don’t give it a thought.


A study in any part of nature proves a higher being exists. Birdwatching is one of my favorite pastimes. It delights me to see an eagle soar over the Susquehanna River, or a hawk watching from a tall leafless tree. He’s waiting for movement; for breakfast.




Though God is not in the flesh, when we are still and concentrate on the search we are overwhelmed by his presence. He is everywhere and in everything. The divine spark is in us all, and while searching for life, may we not deny the spark.

    Great post, and I do love the image of the waiting hawk.

    Sometimes the most fruitful search
    is to sit, be still and wait.
    Like the eagle on his aerie-perch,
    leave God an open gate.
    For He has been seeking you
    from the dawn of Creation,
    but the only way He can get through
    is with your cooperation.
    God, He’s a gentleman,
    He doesn’t stomp the floor,
    but He’ll gladly enter when
    you but open the door.
    If you can quell the urge to run,
    you’ll find True Life has just begun.
