God is with us

I was busy working in the yard pretty much all Saturday. We were adding dirt to our garden areas, pulling weeds and cutting grass. At one point, while I was cutting grass, I thought about the Lord. As I was pushing the mower I considered how the Lord is always present with us. It occurred to me that He is even present when we are doing something as common as cutting the grass. I began to have a conversation with Him and told Him that I knew He was with me and I would love to have some kind of confirmation that He was there. In a matter of moments a gorgeous gold leaf from a tulip poplar fell down on the grass in front of me. I looked up into the trees and could not see any other leaves that had even started to turn color. I believe the Lord was showing me that He was right there with me even as I was walking back and forth with the lawn mower. This is our God. He is with us and He sees and knows and cares about every detail of our lives.
Psalm 56:13 For you have rescued me from death;
you have kept my feet from slipping.
So now I can walk in your presence, O God,
in your life-giving light.
