God is the strong wind
that shapes the earth and sea
and makes the stars shine
to the farthest edge of the heavens.
God is the breath of all living creatures,
the breeze that stirs their hearts,
that refreshes their souls
and renews their spirits.
-From Images of God For Young Children by Marie Hélène Delval
Personally, I like to think of God in the way that Delval describes God, “…the breath of all living creatures, the breeze that stirs their hearts…” I feel something stir in my soul with this imagery, that I otherwise haven’t felt with the “autocrat.” But, everyone is different! Play around with these two views, and even explore other views. Tell me what you feel upon exploration.
Peace, Love, and Laughter,
