Last night, while driving home, I had one of those moments. You know, when your mind is filled with a wonderful emptiness and a common occurrence hits you with total clarity. 
Alone in my car, NPR droning in the background, I cruised through dry air while a lightning storm brewed in panoramic view.  As far as I could safely see, the sky was lit behind clouds in large expanses and in front of clouds in powerful strikes.  It was both terrifying and awe-inspiring. I was overcome with child-like giddiness. As I pulled towards the exit ramp, rain began to pelt my window and the brief moment was over.   
Tell me, what moments in your life have impressed upon you the mystery, power and love of our creator?

  1. Without question, each time I've held a newborn in my arms - seeing each of you suck in your first lungful of breath. Knowing that I held in my arms a miracle. I really couldn't understand how in the world it happens (technically yes, but the spark of life and individuality - no). All the love, the clarity of priorities, eternity intersecting a defined moment. Too much to process, yet it all came together. A God moment for me, five times over.
