"God Seen Dimly" is a blog attempting to look at a God creator so great that we only see him dimly, getting small glimpses of him through his reflections.
As I grow older, my path is shorter so my search for God is far more urgent. I see things I never saw before. I will share these with you in stories, in ramblings of my thoughts and even in poetry. I am a Catholic, a former Agnostic and a former Protestant. This gives me a unique perspective. Please join me on my journey.

Looked into a sun I could not see,
it's brightness was just too much for me.
There I thought I'd found His loving grace,
only found a shadow of His face.
Took a breath and deeply breathed the air,
hoped that I would find His presence there.
I breathed deep and took the air I could,
only smelled the scent of piney wood.
Looking up I saw a darkened cloud,
I heard a voice thunder sharp and loud.
I could not make out a single word,
only felt the rumble that I heard.
One drop at a time, I felt the rain,
hoping He would wash away my pain.
Water running quickly off my cheek,
only left His trail for me to seek.
My wife holding tight our tiny child,
mirror of my self, inside that smile.
Finally now I see God's loving grace,
clearly a reflection of God's face.
(Pray for Life!)
