You are, as the author Kathleen Norris observes, not the God of a dictionary definition but the God of relationship. We are not purely spiritual beings like the angels who behold You constantly. We struggle to behold You. We reach for the relationship. The spiritual side of our nature demands things of our human side that connect us with You. In our relationship with You we look for things that reveal You to us. Contemplating creation is our stepping stone to beholding You.
The angles, of course, see You; but I wonder if they could not see You if they might see You in humans as we might see You in lower animals. It is not just a cliché to say that we see You in nature. We swim in the ocean of Your being, but we so often ignore the water to concentrate on our different strokes. The peace, warmth and satisfaction of beholding You in the beauty and good of life as it exists, not just in us but in an amoeba, an insect, a flower, a fish, a cat, dog, chipmunk, chimpanzee, etc., is something to reflect on, and in that reflection to step closer to You. All around us our eyes see and our ears hear the ebb and flow of this sea of being. Being, in all its forms (creation) is the obvious stepping stone that connects us to You.
