In my mind's eye

What was it that first caught your attention?

Was it something in the wind or actually the wings of an angel brushing the air around you?

It's right about now that you are able to focus on the booming reverberation of the distant words that find your ear.

You search the area near you, making a scan of the horizon knowing you will find the source of the words demanding your focus, but there is nothing.

The air is completely filled with familiar words. So many that you wonder how can it be that you are perfectly positioned to understand and comprehend each and every word.

It's surround sound in its prime, yet you are outdoors with no obvious generating source for the ever increasing din of this supernatural event.

Suddenly and without any introduction you recognize the message from days past, years of your youth, years involving your basic foundation.

"Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name."

There is something different about the prayer this time. It's not really a prayer, but more of a proclamation. An announcement to all within earshot of what has been forgotten.

Bold"Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven."

A reminder of our teachings from days gone by. Basics that we opted not to keep in front of us.

"Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors."

Giving thanks for the blessings we have and for the blessings we are still to receive, and the protection from our enemies.

"And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil."

Keeping our focus on what is real and not of the flesh that will only hinder our journey.

"For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, forever and ever. Amen and Amen."

As the quiet settles over our being, our existence, the realization becomes evident that we have just witnessed the obvious. Where we have turned away from our Creator, the actual creation has had to respond in our stead and cried out in our behalf.

"And she will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins."

Remembering the Reason for the Season, giving thanks in all things.
