Thin Moments

Mornings have never been my favorite. Especially when they start before the sun has shown its presence and I will never, ever understand the point in starting elementary school at the ridiculous hour of 7:30 a.m., but that absurd reality is just one of those things that is what it so unfortunately is. There is one redeeming quality about early mornings, however, that I have come to love and appreciate.

Sometimes I drink my coffee out in the sunroom after I take the boys to school and when I do, and if I time it just right, the newly risen sun enters the room through the many windows and cast the most welcoming rays of warm, glowing light off of every surface it graces. Some days and times of year are better than others and today was one of the best. I was filled with the most euphoric sensation of all-is-right-with-the-world contentment and love.

It reminded me of the concept of Thin Places, those places where the veil of heaven and earth feels somehow thinner, intensifying our ability to feel the presence of God. I have been in places like that and I'm sure you have too. But I believe that there are also what I'll call Thin Moments and that the stronger our relationship with God becomes, the more aware we become; therefore the more we experience these extraordinary moments that come from being still in His presence.
