I continue to write my reflections on Genesis because it is a personal blessing to me to keep mulling over these thoughts, and I’m happy to share them if it blesses others, but I realized it was filling up my blog with these daily posts, which was rather intended to be about my own experiences, so I have transferred them to a separate page (as you can see above).  Let me know if you find them beneficial.

  1. I did find them ! Thanks for continuing to share… The “light green” font was very hard to read though, could you change it…maybe?!

  2. I don’t see anywhere to leave a reply on that new page. Can you add that? And having them all in one very long block of text is hard to read. Can you separate each post onto a new page or something like that? Or at least configure it like the home page of your Grace blogs where there is a break and a large bold heading separating each of the posts.

    Also I have some thoughts this morning about the beauty and value of your meditations that will take some time to compose and will be too long for a post here so I will send it as an email

  3. Janathan, your meditations on Genesis not only bathed my soul with the wondrous presence of God. In the midst of our ongoing and evermore anxious “meditations” on the current terrible direction in our country, suddenly it was like God putting his hand over all that and turning me around to see what it was he wanted me to focus my mind on. To look away from the chaos and fix my gaze on him.

    It brought to my mind the refrain of a current song “Breathe, just breathe, come and sit at my feet; and breathe.” And the line from the hymn “fix your eyes upon Jesus.” It also brought back to my mind a book I’d read many decades ago from which a central idea has been stored away on my shelves of “important thoughts to keep.” The book was a study of many different studies done about prayer and one of the conclusions the author drew from studying the studies was that it appeared the most effective components of prayer were the dual mental and heart foci of a deep loving connection to the object of prayer combined with a deep, abiding, state of gratitude.

    That state of gratitude was what your posts on the wonder of creation and the conscious presence of God permeating all the created universe with love and light and hope reawakened in my heart. You are providing one of the key components of the prayerful mind and heart – to wash through everything within us to continually leave a residue of abiding gratitude for the wonder of God in our world and our lives and our hearts.

    By posting regularly (and the FB notifications dropping into my email box) you keep drawing our minds away from the chaos and into the presence of the living God. And it has made me realize what I feel God is asking of me as well. Begin to feed the thoughts of the wonder and beauty of the presence of God into the conversation of our internet connected world. So I am going to try to go back to my own blog and start creating viganettes of God’s beauty to send out there into the “idea-sphere”

    love and hugs me 😊
