Pine needles of an evergreen tree crunching underfoot; the freshness of rosemary in the air, even my toes feeling wetness from the thick grasses I walked in. I delighted in each of these simple pleasures. I had left my house hungry. A desire beyond my belly drove me to seek something more. Even the water I carried in a bottle could not quench a thirst in me.
I came to a rock where an embedded plaque declared it to be a memorial to someone long gone. Memorializing our love in a Rock pleased me and I felt peace. I could not think of death when I was in the presence of He who offers life; everlasting life for those who would seek the better food and believe it to be nourishing.
Joh 6:27 (Message) “Don’t waste your energy striving for perishable food like that. Work for the food that sticks with you, food that nourishes your lasting life, food the Son of Man provides. He and what he does are guaranteed by God the Father to last.”
