Happiness Doubled by Wonder

We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade, the presence of God.  
The world is crowded with Him.

He walks everywhere incognito.  And the incognito is not always easy to penetrate.
The real labor is to remember to attend.  In fact to come awake.
Still more to remain awake.
C.S. Lewis

     God says, I am understood through what I have made.  And so an ordinary noon-time walk leaves me without excuse.  I must honor Him and give thanks.  G. K. Chesterton wrote, "I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder."

O LORD, how many are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all;
The earth is full of Your possession.

You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good.
Psalm 104: 24, 28
